John Rivas
American, b. 1997

John Rivas (b. 1997, Newark, NJ) is a figurative painter whose narrative is guided by the stories of his ancestors. As a first-generation American, Rivas’ artwork is enriched with tales of family members; many of whom he has met remotely or through photographs.

Rivas’ paintings occupy space like sculpture juxtaposing unexpected objects, a great amount of which are sourced from his childhood. Rivas' brush strokes are expressive marks that add to a greater visual collage. Each painting is loaded with symbolism that results in intimate compositions celebrating the Latinx concept of family and community. Rivas recently graduated with his BFA from the School of Visual Arts and is pursuing his MFA at Columbia University this Fall.
