John Crittenden

Canadian artist John Crittenden is a painter, photographer, printmaker and prepress specialist. Since his first one-person show at Lambs Art Gallery in Calgary, Alberta in 1966 John has produced and sold more than 1,200 paintings. For almost fifty years he has never wavered from painting and recording the history of Canada.

A gifted artist, John's style is unique, free-flowing and earthy. His strong use of earth colours is what sets his work apart. John has had many one-person shows in venues ranging from commercial art galleries to the National Art Centre in Ottawa and his work has appeared in many magazines and books. His portfolio the History of Transportation received the endorsement of Expo 86 as "the official portfolio of limited edition prints for Expo 86" and was presented by the BC Government to the Prince and Princess of Wales during their visit to Expo 86. John is of Irish and Anishinabe Ojibway ancestry whose lineage can been traced back to Ojibway Indians living in the White Mud River settlement on the shores of Lake Manitoba. No longer able to paint because of vision loss, he has turned to his second love, night photography.
