Denis, John Joseph

John Denis lives & works in Chicago, IL. He  has been a full time working artist for over twenty years, exhibiting in over fifty juried art shows throughout the West Coast.  Denis began as an assistant to New Orleans metal sculptor Luis Colmenares.  Using a torch and simple hand tools, John fabricated a large body of work of private and public sculptures.

“My work is a reflection of my time spent on the Pacific Coast.  The relevance and infinite character of the ocean has always fueled my senses and imagination.”

John’s work presents a modern sensibility to form, texture, light and composition.
