John Boak is a graduate of Yale University. Working in both oil painting, digital images and photography, Boak has drawn from many inspirations: urban and rural images; symbols, glyphs, and semiotics; early 20th century European art and design; and a wide range of historical and cultural inquiry. He has worked in a variety of media for both private and public commissions, in materials such as paint, wood, steel, glass, bronze, stone, stucco, and hardscape. His commission process supports the feedback necessary for good design, keeping the client in the loop with realistic digital simulation of the finished art.

Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
