inspiration: john botz


While doing some visual research for a current project I came across the work of John Botz and was so inspired. I absolutely love his use of color, his subject matter and the loose airy style he has with the brush. I wanted to share a few favorites I cam across. His work is mainly gouche and his style heavily influenced by Matisse and Dufy. He was commissioned to create fabric for Brunschwig and Fils, Brule and Cie and Pierre Frey as well as stationery for Crane and Company.
