ARTIST'S STATEMENT

BA, New England School of Art and Design
MFA, Massachusetts College of Art and Design [MassArt]
Executive Creative Director, Racepoint Global Advertising

Gonnella’s work can be said to be conforming yet bold: he presents the viewer with familiar, comfortable imagery, rendered with a shamelessly contemporary hand. He breathes new life into iconic figures with his use of bold colors, varied paint application techniques, and slick strokes. His work is a juxtaposition between old and illusive; the comfortable and the unspoken; the commercial and the aesthetic. Gonnella borrows bold techniques from the world of advertising in his fine art renderings. As Executive Creative Director for a world-class advertising agency, John Gonnella creates branding experiences that invoke curiosity, engagement and participation. His clients include such major companies as Panasonic, John Deere, Huawei, New Balance, Reebok and Timberland.
