Italian, business savvy, passionate and funny, John Bell is refreshingly honest about his art, possessing an authentic perspective on life that demands your attention. His current exhibit at Nox Contemporary, Postmodern Blues, features twenty provocative works that explore postmodern ideas of culture, its demise and rebirth. The desire to explore meaning in a postmodern age, streams through much of Bell’s work. I sat down with Bell in his studio recently to learn about his upbringing and explore some ideas about what drives his creative process and how his art has evolved over the years.
