Born in California, where he studied at CCAC, John Copeland now lives and works in New York, NY. His unique brand of paintings—marked by undefined forms, elaborate drips, and a romanticism and fullness not often attributed to acrylic paint—is informed by scraps of old magazines, music, his father’s Playboy magazines from the 1960s, and an intense fondness for both abstraction and the figure. Images of faceless, fleshy figures, skulls, television sets, cartoon characters, and animals are repeatedly found in his work, which is at once dark and whimsical.

John Copeland is represented by V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, Nicholas Robinson Gallery in New York, and Gallerie Alex Daniels – Reflex in Amsterdam.
