Artist Profile

John Kobald
Terrestrial Ascent (Cut Throat)
Terrestrial Ascent (Cut Throat)

Sculpture
Originals
At an early age, John was taught by his parents how to observe nature and translate it into an art form. He started creating with the guidance of his father Ray, who is a widely respected artist. John received a BFA in sculpture from Northern Illinois University.

Johnís paintings and sculptures reflect his passion for outdoor sport. His experience as a fly-fishing and hunting guide gives him an intimate relationship with the natural world, which he translates into his art. Through bronze and wood sculptures John captures his patient and discerning observations of wildlife. The environment, inherent to the animalís identity, is suggested with a simple gesture. Johnís fascination with the dramatic presence of wildlife will forever influence his artwork.

His travels throughout North and Central America and New Zealand have provided him many research opportunities. Water color paintings express the varied environments of his travels, including the rivers of the Rocky Mountains, the colorful aquatic life of the oceans and the moods of the changing seasons.

Johnís commissioned artwork is appreciated in private and corporate collections throughout the United States, Europe, Africa and New Zealand
John currently resides in northwest Colorado with his wife and two children.
