“Late Bloomers” Watercolor by John Nieman.

Overall, John’s creative process is a balance of traditional techniques in a modern style, resulting in mesmerizing works of art that tell a story and engage the viewer.

One of John’s notable installations, “Milk Cartons,” portrays the old milk cartons that police once used to exhibit missing persons. However, instead of missing people, John’s artwork displays the absent qualities in our society today. Each milk carton in the installation features a world icon representing those qualities.

For instance, one of the milk cartons depicts Mahatma Gandhi’s image with the word “Compassion” beside it. Similarly, another milk carton features the image of Nelson Mandela with the word “Courage” beside it. The installation profoundly impacts the viewers, and the accompanying words enhance the narrative, emphasizing the qualities we should strive for as a society.

John Nieman’s art is visually pleasing and a unique fusion of visuals and words that create an interactive art experience. His famous installations, such as “Milk Cartons” and “Big Apple,” continue to inspire people worldwide to reflect on the emotions and values that define our humanity.
