John Yaou

John’s current body of work focuses on celebrating Urban/Street Art. His aim is to use these influences to elevate these genres to a level of high art. Although his subject matter may differ, his work remains cohesive by keeping the methodology and technique consistent. Graffiti Culture is a counterculture that greatly influenced and nurtured Yaou’s love of art and stands as a celebration of a counter culture that that has influenced so many young people to become artists themselves.

John will be featured in our May 2018 exhibition, CounterCulture: Hidden Stories of Chicago Past and Present. To discover more Yaou’s work visit him here.
