John Gialanella was born a Midwesterner in the great mitten state, where he pursued art and design at an early age, eventually earning a Bachelor of Fine Art with an emphasis in Graphic Design from Siena Heights University. After graduating, and a visit to the Southwest, he was taken by the vast and varied landscape, and soon found himself lugging a U-Haul cross country to his new home in the Arizona desert.

While in Arizona, John pursued and obtained a Master of Fine Art degree with an emphasis in Visual Communication from the University of Arizona. He has since spent the last two and a half years rummaging around thrift stores, adding to his cardigan collection, and teaching Visual Communication as a Lecturer at Northern Arizona University.

John's work has an inherent nostalgic quality, often collaged or assemblaged pieces utilizing found objects and images. He also practices design on a freelance basis, and has been the Art Director for Sonora Review for the last four years. Often as the case is, his artwork directly influences his design style— vice versa, the design pushes the art in a similar capacity.
