About the Artist

John Baran is an artist and photographer from Santa Barbara, California. His art can be found in stores and galleries in California and Hawaii. He has exhibited his work in locations around the world, including New York, Brussels and Busan, South Korea. His art has been featured on the sets of ‘Hawaii Five-0’, ‘Magnum P.I.’  and the upcoming HBO series ‘Ke Nui Road’. 

An avid and accomplished photographer, John travels the world photographing his subject matter. His experiences with the animals in their natural environment is an integral part of his painting process. Photographing, sketching and spending time with these animals and watching their behavior helps John create works of art that are vibrant and full of life. He has swum with killer whales, sharks, giant manta rays, manatees and dolphins. On land, he has walked among white rhinos, cape buffalo, leopards, lions, American alligators, black bears, wolves and African elephants. All these experiences have resulted in works that are a colorful fusion of abstract art and wildlife from the land, sky and sea.
