About John Pearson

 

JOHN PEARSON is a Twin Cities native and graduate of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (1975) where he studied graphic design, photography and drawing, with courses in intaglio printmaking under Tom Egerman and photography under Joe Gianetti.

 

Pearson’s design career led him to northwestern Minnesota where he created a series of soft sculpture and stuffed animals for Lady Slipper Designs, a non-profit cottage industry. When he returned to Minneapolis-St. Paul he worked as a graphic designer, typographer, art director, and digital media manager.

 

Pearson explores visual arts through photography, painting, and printmaking. He joined the Highpoint Printmaking Cooperative in May, 2004 where he he shows regularly. He has photos and prints in business and private collections around the Twin Cities, and his photography appears at the Minnesota History Center where it is incorporated into exhibits and hangs in public spaces.


"I'm drawn to subject matter in which the natural environment rubs against the man-made world."

 

Pearson presently has prints available at Highpoint Center for Printmaking in Minneapolis.
