January 12, 2018   Welcome and greetings to you in this new year.

ArtSpirit Studio, located here in Hong Kong, is small and independently operated by myself John Stolfo. I am also the owner/builder/manager of this website which was first posted a year ago.

This site serves as my on-line portfolio and is also supplemented by quite regular promotional postings on Facebook. Here I can only provide a selection of work completed since 1990 when I then turned professional at age 40.

Earlier, in my 20's, I started with only a vivid dream to serve culture and I can say with measured confidence that during my professional years, I eventually succeeded in realizing that dream by conducting my creativity as a free-lance art business. I began in Sweden for 5 years, returned to the USA for 13 years and have now been active the past 9 years in Asia. 

No creation from heart-to-hands is too small, or too large. Since my personal formative years in Europe, I've aimed at meeting at least some of the inner needs of others. For 25+ years, since my early 50's, I have conducted very many public adult level workshops in painting, sculptural clay, drawing, and eurythmy most of which have occurred these past 9 years in cities all across mainland China as well as in other countries: namely, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan and of course here in Hong Kong.

I want to be clear that my main efforts go into large scale wall painting...which means integrating beautiful painterly color and contemporary imaginative imagery with existing or newly built architectural surfaces. Sometimes this is called monumental painting.

However, as has been mentioned and as will be viewed as you move from page to page on this website, I carry out many other types of creative work both at on-site locations or in my small studio. Now at this period of my life I only accept wall painting commissions and any teaching requests from around Asia. Small scale art from the studio can be purchased and posted globally. In most recent years, work has been shipped to both North and South America.

I hope that you may find enjoy-ment in what you view here. Please do not hestitate to contact me with questions or comments.

yours, john stolfo
