About John…

John Kelting grew up drawing next to his father and sister. Diagnosed with Down Syndrome, John used art as his form of expression. A master of pencil drawing, watercolor painting and recently ceramics/sculpture, John’s work shows the way he perceives the world and is a catalyst for his personal relationships. Inspired by special effects in films like “The Terminator”, “Iron Man” and “Twilight”, John paints portraits of cinema with a pop art and underground comic book flare. John has built a comprehensive portfolio of unique paintings.
John studied at Portland’s Metropolitan Learning Center, Graphic School of Illustration and Cartooning and at Portland State University. He worked as an illustrator for The Oregonian and for the Hillside News. His work hangs in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s office. John currently works and resides in Portland, Oregon.
