This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Post War California artist, John Grillo was known as one of the most aggressive West Coast artists to pursue Abstract Expressionism and painted in gouache, watercolor and poster-based water paints as well as oil. In addition, he was also a sculptor, printmaker and art educator.

Grillo was born in Lawrence, Massachusetts and studied at the Hartford Art School, 1935-1938; California School of Fine Arts, 1945-1947; with Hans Hoffman in New York and the Hans Hoffman School of Fine Arts, Provincetown, Massachusetts, 1948-1951. Grillo remained active in Provincetown, Massachusetts during much of his career.

He received the Ford Foundation grant to work at Tamarind Lithography Workshop, Los Angeles, 1964 and the Ford Foundation artist-in-residence grant at Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown, Ohio, 1964. He taught at the New School for Social Research, New York, 1964-1966 and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, 1967-1991.
