John-Claude Saldana Biography
“My paintings are manifestations of my life in its present state. Each movement is quick and spontaneous. As my emotion changes, so do the layers and the outcome of the canvas. In every piece, there is no room for thought, just feeling. The canvas becomes a recording of the moment.” Out of the ordinary has always been the overall theme to John Saldaña’s style as an artist. Since he was a child, John was always drawing on anything and everything. It was told that as an adolescent John had an easier time talking about his day through illustration rather than verbal communication. A life as an creative professional has always been a goal for John as a child, whatever artistic study it may have been in. However, as John grew older art was discouraged by his parents and it slowly disappeared from his life. It wasn’t until November 2014 that John hit rock bottom. He was fired from his job and became unemployed for months. Due to the inability to maintain his bills John’s car was repossessed and calls from collection agencies became a daily routine. One evening John was gifted with a acrylic paint set from his girlfriend. She was aware of his artistic background, and thought painting would be a fun activity. A handful of paintings later John fell in love with his newfound art. Surprisingly, he never really paid too much attention to painting as a child. In fact, he hated it. Not only did he hate painting, he hated Abstract. Now, Abstract paintings are what John finds to be his best means of expression. Four years later, John has become a member of the Los Angeles Art Association and former member of the Laguna Art Group. He has participated in dozens of art shows, art walks, galleries, competitions and various events. He has sold hundreds of original works of art and has easily become an influential creative in the artistic community.
