The Artist

In his many travels, John Davis Held spent several months living in an African Hut, before hitch-hiking across Europe to paint the cathedrals, castles, and countryside.

"Is the Universe conscious?" the artist seems to ask.  "Is light itself conscious in some fashion?"

His studies in Astrophysics at Columbia University were not enough to answer these questions, and consequently, much of his art is an exploration into these mysteries.  His work often has an extraordinary sense of light, and is deeply spiritual. His paintings convey feelings of joy, lightness of spirit, and somehow, a sense of both peace and excitement simultaneously.  


John Davis Held is known for his luminous work in pastel and oil, and has had One Man Shows at the Antreasian Gallery, NIH, and the Troika Gallery. He is where he is represented at the Troika Gallery, and the Gallery D'May.  He has appeared on CBS and Fox news, and his art was featured this last December on MPT Artworks as well as being displayed on the 60 foot Jumbotron across from Penn Station in Baltimore.


After several years living in Seattle, he now lives in a historic Tudor home in Baltimore with his beautiful wife and their two cats.
