John W. Fesken

John W. Fesken is a traveler, painter, musician, sculptor, and toy collector. He creates emotionally provocative, three-dimensional, theatrical constructions focusing on the joys and challenges of the human condition. His work relies upon handmade and manipulated found objects, with a strong emphasis on self-taught drawing, sculpture, and painting techniques. 

Born and raised in Jersey City, NJ, he currently resides in a small town along the Mississippi River just outside of New Orleans with his wife and four canines. Fun fact: he once charmed a cobra in Northern Africa.
