Known in several different countries for his astounding artwork, biting wit and charming personality, John Moran splits his time between the town of Normal, Illinois and the city of Ghent, Belgium. After receiving his degree from Tyler School of Art, he spent several years working in the Philadelphia area. Since then, he has traversed the globe in search of knowledge, and employment. In 2009, John was awarded a CGCA Fellowship at Wheaton Arts. In early 2010, he was invited to IKA Mechelen, Belgium as an artist in residence and guest instructor. Upon his return he moved a car full of his worldly possessions west, as an MFA candidate at Illinois State University. His work reflects his interests in politics, philosophy, religion and human social behavior meshed with his sense of humor and a touch of altruism. He has exhibited at SOFA Chicago, Thomas R. Riley Gallery, Traver Gallery, Flame Run, and several other galleries within the continental United States.
