Juror: John Bayalis has been the recipient of numerous awards throughout the United States and has painted abroad in Ireland, England and France. Noted for his distinct, realist style, the artist’s skill at handling contemporary themes and subject matter has earned him acclaim from art critics and collectors throughout the United States. John’s vibrant  watercolors reflect a specific clarity of light and form,  while dealing with unique viewpoints in portraying popular culture and the vernacular landscape. The artist has also embraced still life as a format, and  sought to show a personal vision in both content and  composition. Intricate set ups include man-made and  natural elements as well as printed backdrops,  vintage postcards and periodicals. The carefully selected viewpoints depict compositions meticulously rendered on the watercolor paper, that glow in subtly balanced color palettes. Among his honors are an award of an individual artist’s fellowship grant and the selection for The Watercolor Page in AMERICAN ARTIST  magazine where one of his works graced the cover. The artist’s works are included in private and corporate collections throughout the United States.
