John Gascot – Painter & Curator

John Gascot, Charlie’s Joint

John Gascot, Mother’s Burden

Music is quite influential to my painting. Be it a title, a lyric or melody, it often sets or supports the tone and pace of my work. I listen to almost every style there is. I like to create Jazz-themed or abstract pieces to the tunes of John Coltrane, Charlie Parker or Max Roach.

When painting Caribbean-flavored works I might listen to anyone from classic Latinx artists like Celia Cruz to contemporary ones such as Maluma. And when painting political pieces you might find me in the studio blasting anyone from Nina Simone to Logic.
