John Bankston's "At the Crossroads" (2006-2007) Oil on linen 54 x 48 in. (137.1 x 122 cm)
John Bankston is a self-declared storyteller and visual novelist. Born in Benton Harbor, MI, 1963, the artist now lives and works in San Francisco where he is represented by Rena Bransten Gallery, San Francisco. Bankston uses the coloring book’s division of line and color to establish a basic rubric of oppositional meaning that extends to our culture’s major social divisions––adult and child, white and black, male and female, heterosexual and queer. In honor of Gay Pride Month, "Art of the Crossroads" artist John Bankston is our artist of the week.
