Whether the design is on canvas, wood or paper, Artist John Ross Palmer's artwork is always a testament to his energy, creativity and passion for life. As Palmer the individual continues to grow, so does his art. From what started as two dimensional abstract paintings on canvas, his depth of art offered in our Houston art gallery now includes original artwork on custom boxes, furniture, ceiling murals, salvage wood and neon. His inspiration for the art comes from his travels abroad to Greece, Austria, Spain, Japan, Argentina, South Africa, Germany, Ireland and Israel, as well as his local Houston Heights community's desire to honor history. Escapism is not only the name of Palmer's primary art style but also his Art Movement. His Escapism style allows the art enthusiast to ease into the world of the abstract by combining his strong, vibrant brushstrokes with subtle aspects of realism. As the Founder of Escapism and the Escapist Mentorship Program, Palmer seeks to elevate all artists by teaching them that through hard work and ingenuity the stereotype of the struggling artist can be forever destroyed.
