John Ferri is a visual artist who divides his time between Toronto and Prince Edward County. He has worked as a journalist, editor and media executive.
John’s art blends elements of photography, collage and graphic design – to create a unique visual perspective that balances precision, whimsy and a fascination with human movement. His work can embody both simple, minimalist compositions as well as multi-layered imagery suffused with bright, bold colours. However, each work is infused with a single, consistent vision: the interplay of people in constructed spaces, real or imagined. The intent is to capture the forces that shape, direct and sometimes overwhelm the human form. Themes of solitude, dignity and the search for significance are central.
John Ferri has exhibited since 2011 and his work hangs in numerous personal and corporate collections. He is a long-time member of Toronto’s Gallery 1313.
