“Accessibility and inspiration” is the best thing about living in New York, cites 31 year old artist John Roebas.

His process-intensive works not only explore the use of enamels and oils, but experimental dyeing and bleaching of the surface also, with each work developing their own identity and changing with the course of time. John explains his work as “somewhere between painting, photography and sculpture,” with this explanation describing his approach to his practice, maintaining no limits to his medium and exercising his freedom.
