About This Artist:

In 1986 John Capitano developed a system of chance for selecting colours using darts. While aiming for a dartboard bull’s eye he throws a dart until a numbered wedge is struck. He then paints with its predetermined hue; Carried out in a playful spirit, this arbitrary system results in unique color combinations. To resolve a painting the game-playing shifts to problem-solving, still maintaining this chance process.

Born and raised in London Ontario, John studied fine art at the University of Western Ontario with Patterson Ewen as his painting instructor followed by a master’s degree from the University of Calgary in 1991. After travels through Europe, India and across Canada, John has made Vancouver home since 1994.

John has had representation from a number of galleries, most notably with the Douglas Udell Gallery in Vancouver and Edmonton since 2008 until the gallery recently closed this fall 2016.
