Follies Artist
John Landon

Local artist, John Landon, created quite a name for himself on the Central Coast as well as all throughout the United States. His passion for California life inspired him to create paintings, interpreting the joy of living on the California Coast. His work had been acquired by celebrities, past presidents, business elite and discerning private collectors. Celebrities such as Anthony Hopkins, Jay Leno, Geena Davis and Arnold Schwarzenegger have all acquired John’s cheerful and whimsical art. Corporate owners include the Boeing Corporation, Hilton Hotels, NASA, Unocal, Cisco Systems and many others. The popularity of his music-themed work inspired the famed Hollywood Bowl to privately commission Landon for custom work. The engineer-turned-artist had his murals rapidly cropping up on local buildings and landmarks, and even President George W. Bush stated that Landon’s work was, “one of the best pieces of art to come to the White House”. His talent was such that he was acclaimed for the ‘CALIFORNIA EXPRESSIONISM’ style of art. The Follies are honored that he chose to depict them on their 16th year, and first performance at The Fremont. Thank you, John, for making so many people happy with your unique, fun, and uplifting style. You left an imprint on the art world, and left the Central Coast brighter for having lived here. You will be greatly missed….
