About MeJohn Markese is a <a href="http://www.johnmarkese.com">Chicago portrait artist</a> that specializes in figurative art and portraiture in a variety of mediums, but most notably oil and acrylic paintings and pastels. His style is spontaneous, filled with lively brushwork and agile mark making. The palette John uses punctuates these qualities in his marks and juxtaposes unusual hues to visually describe the human form in interesting ways. He mainly paints from live models and utilizes the time constraints of painting from life to emphasize the intensity of his style.
