John Taylor Wagner

John Taylor Wagner is an American figurative painter born in 1985. Originally from Winter Park, Florida - he currently resides in Boulder, Colorado. Wagner received academic training in classical realism and over time has simplified his style. He creates images capturing the lives of humans at the cross-section of nature and culture. He paints his subjects in idyllic moments of presence and stillness. The subjects of his work are friends and family with whom he has connected deeply in his life, which inspires these moments. Wagner's paintings invite tender pause, reflection, curiosity, and playful mystery. Each painting is an invitation to step into the inherent familiarity of the human experience, to steep in the fleeting moments in time, and the freedom that lies between.
