"Manhattan Beach is an iconic small town on the coast of southern California," states artist John Jaster. "It harks back to the original surfer hangouts that dotted the West Coast. Colorful buildings slope down to the pier that juts out into the blue Pacific. The shadows of tall palm trees speckle the sun-baked street and parked cars." John utilizes heavy body acrylics with multiple layers to achieve bold and rich colors.

Artist John Jaster paints in a style he describes as realistic impressions, capturing colorful views of his adventures across the Americas. "People always ask me how I get such deep brilliant colors," says John. "The answer is layers. Since acrylic paint dries mostly transparent, it requires multiple layers of paint to build up to a specific color. With the right lighting that depth of layering is like sunshine glistening through clear water." In college, John felt a pull towards computer science and pursued a career in software architecture. Although the two paths may seem unrelated, John says his work in software strongly influences his artwork in terms of distilling complex systems without losing the magic and wonder. Today, John works from a large home studio with a fireplace, lots of natural light, and jazz playing in the background. Since 2010, John’s paintings have been displayed in over 90 juried exhibitions and published in leading art magazines and books.
