ABOUT

Welcome to langwich splendur, friend!
I am John Salquist, a multi media artist who has developed a love for computer graphics and 3D, and made these my primary tools.

I have a background in graphic design, painting, drawing, video, sound art, web art, installation, digital art, performance, web design, photography, and artistic writing. My primary interests as an artist are language, epistemology, shamanism and morality. These are huge and interlocking fields that continue to pervade my work.
