Artist: John Haugse
John Haugse earned his degree in Fine Arts at the San Francisco Art Institute. He was awarded a visiting professorship of Art at Harvard University’s Carpenter Center for the Arts, taught animation and drawing at UCSB and awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in art.
Haugse’s work has been guided and inspired by his environment. Upon his return to California in 2012 he was once again struck by the vivid colors and shapes of our changing and dramatic landscape. He seeks to compose paintings that transport the viewer into a different spaces in a new and challenging way.
