Biography from Odon Wagner Contemporary:
John Macdonald is a Canadian painter, born in Prince George, British Columbia.  After graduating from Emily Carr in 1987, he lived and worked for a number of years in Vancouver.

Macdonald chooses to paint in a manner that is engaged with historical tradition, in both a conceptual and formal sense.  His subject matter includes landscapes, seascapes and people engaged in various activities – swimming, fishing, and sometimes just ‘watching’.  His figure paintings are narrative compositions, often cropped in such a way that seems informed by snapshot photography.  This cropping, along with his methodology -which sometimes involves obscuring the image with a hazy veil of paint- gives his pictures a somewhat nostalgic resonance.

John Macdonald currently resides on Salt Spring Island with his wife, painter Patricia Murphy Macdonald, and their daughter.
