John Breiner

Born in New York in 1980, I grew up during the Pre-internet golden era of Garden Gnomes, wooden jump ramps and being home by dark.  As a teen Discovering D.I.Y cultures like Skateboarding, HIPHOP, Graffiti and DJ-ing crafted me into the artist I am today.


After attending the School Of Visual Arts in Manhattan in the late 1990's - mid 2000's I developed my current body of work which takes elements of my past involving the use of mixed medias such as ink, spray paint and print making combined on weathered and found surfaces to emulate the layers on the walls I grew up painting. Through the progression of this technique I began to work with specifically Old discarded books and Paper. I find myself always chasing their golden brown / yellow faded surfaces. A reminder time stops for no one and to make it count while you can. 

My work has been shown across the world and has been featured by brands and publications such as.. Anthem Magazine, Cool Eh, Day In the Lyfe Magazine, Def-Jux records ,Chocolate Industries, Collective Arts Brewing, Open City, Urban Outfitters, Tank Theory, A-Ok All Day Records, MillHouse Brewing Company, Bella Magazine, NBC first look, Jade Palace Guard and more..

I currently work full time as an artist as well as the founder / director of Clinton Street Studio a contemporary Art gallery located in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. 

Ive also recently founded the "Arterial project" a mural project to accompany the highways moving through the city as well helping bring a good number of the public art works to the area as the art director of O+Positive Poughkeepsie.
