Designer Series: John Hammer
Second in artist cover series
This week is the second installment of our Designer Series artists' cover series. "Cain's" by John Hammer captures the vibrancy of one of the world's most famous small venues, and it's ours.
Perhaps the best known for his bright, pop art-inspired series of paintings of characters from the Big Lebowski, John Hammer does more than just pain The Dude. His work encompasses any number of subjects, many of which are here in Tulsa. His version of the Tulsa Driller is striking in its use of color, and his portrait of Will Rogers captures the man's good humor and gives credence to those who have called Hammer's work "Pop Impressionism."
While his first love is still drawing with a pencil. Hammer continues producing quality art in a variety of media while holed up at The Hammer Studio, which he opened last year. Visit www.thehammerstudio.com
