My name is John Carpenter I am an artist living in St Louis Missouri, I have been painting
for over 8 years. My media of choice is acrylic, stylistically I am influenced by Fauvism, Cubism,
Pop Art, Art Brut, Impressionism, and Surrealism. I have had exihibitions at Art Attack Gallery
in St Louis (3 shows), Studio 7 (2 shows), Art Deminsions (2 shows at Lemp Stables), as well as
1 show in San Pedro California at 309 gallery, 1 show in New York at an outsider art gallery which
the name of which i cannot remember, and 1 show in British Columbia that is no longer in business.
My goals are to be the best artist I can be and bring art to those who normally would not be
exposed to it, to portray life and our world in a way that has not been done before, to use color and
brush work to invest emotion in my subjects, and find new ways of telling stories through one of the
one of the oldest media in existence.
Attached are several examples of my work

We’re hosting an art show and fundraiser on March 20, 2010, and would like for you to submit one or more pieces to our event. I’ve included some information below. Please contact me if you have any questions about the project. Thanks in advance!
The Inspired Art Project enlists local artists to create and submit original works, inspired by original poetry written by students participating in America SCORES St. Louis. Started by another SCORES affiliate in the Bay Area, the Inspired Art Project is an exciting national model for community collaboration.
On, March 20, 2010, the selected artwork will be collected and displayed at our annual Inspired Art Show. Proceeds from the event will support America SCORES St. Louis, a unique, comprehensive, youth development program which uses the tools of poetry, soccer, creative expression and service-learning to equip and inspire urban youth to lead healthy lifestyles, become engaged students, and grow into leaders for their schools and communities.
Interested artists need to register ASAP in order to submit their work to the event. Artists may choose to collect 25% of the final auction price for their work, or can donate all or a portion of the commission back to America SCORES St. Louis. Other artist benefits include:
• Free admission to the event (includes two complimentary drinks)
• Free guest tickets (up to 3) to the event
