Welcome to the John Ross Palmer Fine Art Gallery
Houston, Texas

Whether the design is on canvas, metal, wood or paper, Houston 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, his artwork maintains a beautiful evolution. From what started as two dimensional abstract paintings on canvas, his depth of art offered in the Houston Art Gallery now includes original artwork on custom boxes, furniture, ceiling murals, salvage wood, neon, ceramics, jewelry, unique merchandise and gifts. His inspiration for the art comes from his travels abroad to Greece, Austria, Spain, Japan, Argentina, South Africa, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Brazil, France, Trinidad & TobagoCuba and New Zealand 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. Palmer is not only a successful Houston businessman but also an accomplished author, speaker and philanthropist. For these reasons he has been coined The Hardest Working Man in the Art Business®.  The John Palmer Art Gallery & Studio is open by appointment only.  Call 713-861-6726, e-mail Ryan@JohnPalmerArt.com or text Ryan Lindsay at 281-224-0968 to set an appointment.
