With a street-graffiti sensibility, John Mullins exudes a modern aesthetic that recalls the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat. Boldly colored in a Pop palette of neon tones and saturated primary hues, John’s drawings usually revolve around his favorite places, modes of transportation, or objects, including swimming pools, subway trains, airplanes, radios, cassette tapes, and headphones. Paired with text—a succinctly stated personal affirmation in the form of, “John Mullins. Yes. Likes.”, John’s statements are steadfast as they are firm in opinion.
