About the Artist:
John Scott Postovit was born in Grand Forks, North Dakota in 1962, and raised in Bismarck and Fargo. He attended the University of North Dakota, and graduated in 1985 with a B.F.A. in Painting and a B.S. in Physics. Since then, he has lived on the east and west coasts, as well as a nine-month spell in Florence, Italy. His paintings and drawings have been exhibited in galleries and museums in various locations across the country, including North Dakota, Minnesota, New Jersey, Washington, Ohio, Montana, and California. To date, his art has appeared in 41 solo exhibitions and 142 group shows. He currently lives in the mountains south of San Francisco, California, where he draws as well as teaching math and physics.

​Postovit’s primary medium for the past thirty-four years has been pastel and charcoal. Over the years, his work has progressed to more detailed and complex representational work. Most of his work is done for specific shows, and the themes vary from show to show, from figurative to historical, mythological to allegorical, and cityscape to landscape. The common thread found throughout these drawings are the intense colors, and many surreal and anachronistic objects thrown into the compositions.
