Context is everything.

John Beck McConnico is a visual artist, creative director, and product designer who lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area. He works in a variety of mediums, including paint, collage, digital media, and assemblage.

His recent mixed media artwork involves an intensive process of execution, in which time and location play a key role. Each piece captures a precise moment, a specific geographical site, and state of being. The unifying theme across the series is the manipulation of context and perception. Being inspired by urban and rural architectural landscapes, his recent mixed media work also reflects the industrial fabric that binds our current environments. It is this balance between Past/Future and Manufactured/Rustic that informs these visual narratives.

John graduated from Otis-Parsons School of Design in Los Angeles and also studied Fine Art & Photography at The Memphis College of Art. His work has been featured in publications such as (t)here Magazine, Studio Visit, Forbes Online, and The Pepin Press—and is included in both national and international collections.


“No piece of art is truly ‘done.’ The artist must just decide when it should be shared—and when to stop touching it.”
