John Kelly is a performance and visual artist.


Performances – whether fictitonal creations or staged homages to actual personae – are character driven works that stem from autobiographical, cultural, and political sources, as witnessed through the nature of the human condition and the imperatives of creative genius.


His visual art is self-reflective gestures realized through drawing, painting, photography, the graphic novel, animation, and video installation.
