 John Butler (johnny) was born and grew up in the San Francisco’s Bay Area, where the thriving social and spiritual movements of the 60s and 70s helped to shape his creative vision of a complex world beyond that which is immediately experienced.  As he explored art and art history, John was drawn to the surrealist movements of the early 1900’s.  He began to paint his inner world, allowing the ideas and images to bubble up on their own to become contemporary dreamscapes of a surreal notion that are ambiguous, allegorical, and yet accessible in familiarity. 
   As he continues this inner work, he also finds inspiration in the Oregon landscape as he did in the golden California hills, and in Hawaii where he lived for a period of time.  His art can be found on display here in Bandon, Oregon at Riverside Studio.
