Who Am I?

Hi, my name is John Du Val and this is a site dedicated to displaying my artwork and for demonstrating my own introduction to the field of color theory. I am a recent graduate of Rutgers University, where I studied Visual Arts and English literature. The advantages of an education in the visual arts has been an invaluable asset for my art and for just about everything visual I encounter on a daily basis. Why is art important? Why are colors important? These are the questions I have asked myself when developing my work, which consists of an intense focus on the human figure and the phenomena that exist within color relationships. I believe I have begun to answer these questions through the images that are presented on this site, and I hope you enjoy them!

Are you interested in my work? Please contact me with any thoughts or inquiries.
