John Felix Arnold III was born in Durham, North Carolina. Throughout the 80s and 90s he grew up moving between Durham and New York City , always finding stories amongst the rusted, decaying, old spirits of the East Coast. He explores new ways to present perceive and communicate narrative experience through his work. He embraces figurative, abstract and conceptual modes of creating through a range of media and process. He graduated Pratt Institute in 2002 with a BFA in Communication Design and in 2006 moved to study Graduate Printmaking at San Francisco Art Institute. He has shown with SFMOMA, the Luggage Store Gallery, The Shooting Gallery, Joseph Gross Gallery, Spoke Art, BRIC Arts, and was a Spes-Lab Residency artist in Tokyo. He currently lives and works in Oakland, CA.
