By permission of the artist, The Cyber Art Show is pleased to feature the second of two 12-piece exhibitions of works by contemporary American landscape painter John Bayalis (born 1950 in Philadelphia, PA). 

John Bayalis has been the recipient of numerous 
awards throughout the United States and has painted 
abroad in Ireland, England and France. Noted 
for his distinct, realist style, the artist’s skill at handling contemporary themes and subject matter has earned him acclaim from art critics and collectors throughout the United States.

 

John’s vibrant watercolors reflect a specific clarity of light and form, 
while dealing with unique viewpoints in portraying popular culture and the vernacular landscape. The artist has also embraced still life as a format, and sought to show a personal vision in both content and composition. Intricate set ups include man-made and 
natural elements as well as printed backdrops, vintage postcards and periodicals. The carefully selected viewpoints depict compositions meticulously rendered on the watercolor paper, that glow in subtly 
balanced color palettes.


Among John's honors are an award of an individual artist’s 
fellowship grant
and the selection for The Watercolor Page
in AMERICAN ARTIST  magazine where one of his works 
graced the cover.


The artist’s works are included in private and corporate
collections
throughout the United States.

Twelve Pieces by Contemporary Artist

                     John Bayalis (Born 1950)

                     ARTIST'S STATEMENT


“My interest in painting has always been in realism. The world around me has provided an 
infinite variety of colors, forms and textures that I have used for the sources of my work for the past 35 years.

 

I have always had a preference for drawing rather than painting in terms of control and the use of line and detail. Watercolor has provided me with a medium that produces a transition from drawing into using color in painting. 

 

I have explored a variety of subject sources in my career, some more traditional, others 
less so. The current body of work is derived from my interest in visual Americana, that is 
images that I feel are specific to our culture. I have chosen both still life and landscape 
imagery to interpret this vision, focusing on the vernacular that is the functional rather 
than the monumental. An interest is in the commonplace has always been an important 
element in my work. These landscape works reflect some nostalgic elements as well as 
views derived from everyday sights and reflect my view of the present.
