John Whitlock is an Artist and Musician from Brooklyn NY working primarily in Collage and Assemblage. Inspired by popular graphic culture, and the overabundance of media stimuli present in our society, John’s work attempts to evoke familiarity through abstraction. John has been exhibited, and featured in various publications internationally – including a four page feature in Gestalten’s Age of Collage: Contemporary Collage in Modern Art. John also plays in a band called Half Human.
