Biography John St. John
Texas artist John St. John was born in Dallas, Texas on February 24, 1929. Inspired by boyhood memories of growing up around Texas oil fields and wildcatters, John St. John's Petroleum Series captures the intensity of the early oil boom in colors and brush strokes as vivid and bold as the legendary men and events portrayed. Fiercely independent, St. John was fascinated by the entrepreneurial determination and spirit of oil and gas industry pioneers. His work offers an extraordinary glimpse into an epic chapter of Texas history, immortalizing the exploits of independent oilmen through his expressive approach to his subject.
St. John was a gifted and prolific painter and sculptor who began drawing at age seven.
