Laughing, getting results and creating is my primary focus right now. I like luxury and want to define it in my own ways. I let the medium define the product and then mark it with originality and relevance.
My life, up to now (just now) essentially has been a search for how to best express myself. The active use and development of creative faculty is almost a sort of advancement of self-knowlege and opens neglected parts of the Psyche. You may have known me in a past life, but he is dead now.
I don’t know how to describe my style as anything other than a deep intuition and a very personal sense of style coupled with self-education and hard work. With a bit of practice I can apply my skills to interiors, architectural design / fabrication and any sort of interdisciplinary collaboration. I have designs for my cafe concept, my menswear shop, bicycles and furniture to name a few. I have the resources for these things too, just need the right project / partner.
” If people turn to look at you in the street, you are not well dressed, but either too stiff, too tight or too fashionable. “
The converse of this statement is true today, even if you are well tailored and discrete simply because it is an extraordinary thing now. I’m not into flamboyance and excessive garishness, I get enough attention being subtle. I want to speak through my designs … not loudly.
Fashion design is easier than I ever thought it was.

John Grande was born in1969 in Huntington Long Island. He attended the School Of Visual Arts in 1995 earning his BFA. After graduating Grande moved to NYC and worked as a professional C Printer at a photo lab in Tribeca. Printing for High End Fashion, Music and, Fine Art photographers Miles Aldrich – Jack Pearson – Anne Liebovitz – Marc Baptiste – Giles Bensimon – Jerry Schatzberg to name a few. This practice highly influenced his personal work allowing him to asses the work and study their compositions and visual techniques of creating a successful image. After working for several labs in 2002 and the sudden loss of his mother to Asbestos cancer, Grande realized that life is short, and fleeting deciding to leave the printing world to follow his dream and focus all of his energy into his painting practice.
Since that time Grande has exhibited in Solo and Group Shows throughout the world (New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Korea, Italy, India, Canada). He is currently exhibiting with Jim Kempner Fine Arts in New York. Grande is a photo-based artist who works in project form. Using the technique of transferring ” photo realistic” style with paint into a visual dialogue constantly searching for different ways of solving contextual problems and ideas. His current work is about exploring “the Cultural Icon”. Whether derived from pop - contemporary or retro culture - branding symbols - advertising logos - superheroes - phrases and art. Interweaving and, integrating them together transforming there original meanings while at the same time relying on there visual familiarity. With these works I was interested in building paintings that are derived out of today’s overwhelming multi media world.
