About the Artist: "Art is an adventure for the artist and viewer alike. Creating paintings as visual ideas is a way of communicating how I see (or feel) the universe. I create art works for myself, making things I find interesting. It is my hope that viewers will enjoy the work visually and discover its mysteries."
John Mominee is a Wisconsin artist known for his handsome, large-format monotypes. Collectors respond to the extraordinary color, sensuous texture and relationship of light to dark. Paint brushed onto a Plexiglas plate that is printed using an etching press creates the monotype. Each "transfer painting" is unique and original. John’s dynamic monotype compositions are the sources for the giclée prints shown in the Drybrush Graphics catalog.
Born in Evansville Indiana John earned an M.F.A. in painting from Southern Illinois University in 1967. He taught at the university level until 1994, when he decided to become a full-time painter.
John’s artwork can be found in prominent corporate and private collections including: Johnson Wax, Price Waterhouse and Oscar Meyer Company.
