Private Collection, Toronto


Born in Windsor, Ontario, John Scott has been a significant player in the Canadian contemporary art world for the past twenty years. Scott completed his education at the University of Toronto and Ontario College of Art, having left high school after grade ten to work in a factory. Scott considers himself a politically charged, blue-collar artist whose rabbit-like drawings “stand in for the anxiety-ridden human being, the harassed victim of the technological threat and militaristic oppression.”

Scott’s works are exhibited throughout Canada and are represented in prestigious collections including the Art Gallery of Ontario; Museum of Modern Art, New York; University of Toronto; and the National Gallery of Canada.
