Millions of people have seen the work of  John Casado, American born.

He made his name in advertising and design where he created the branding for NEW LINE CINEMA, ESPRIT and MACINTOSH.  His work in the music industry won him cult status and received a Grammy Award for design.  In 1984, John mounted a show of abstract paintings (alongside the work of Man Ray) at the Stephen Wirtz Gallery, San Francisco.  Today his art involves photography.

 

 

JOHN CASADO: AN ARTIST FOR OUR NEW CENTURY 

One indication that we have truly entered a new era of creativity are the

photographs of John Casado.  His nudes, reveal new attitudes and new visions that stamp him firmly as an artist who differs from his predecessors of the past 170 years.   In the past two centuries, from the earliest days of photography, the nude has evolved slowly, but there is now a decided change. - David Leddick
