Now some of John Holyfield's most popular paintings have been artfully interpreted into hand crafted figurines that bring his stories to life with the same unparalled level of quality synonymous with Lenox and Ebony Visions. Ebony Visions proudly welcomes John into into its family of artists celebrating life and the African American Spirit.
John Holyfield's work has a strong southern folksy feel, capturing the essence of rural life. His themes are family, spirituality and culture. For much of his subject matter, he draws from his family members, childhood memories and stories from his grandmothers. His grandmothers are his greatest inspirations; which explains the repetition of women in his works. John has always been captivated by the church and and often depicts images related to spirituality. John also focuses on aspects such music, heritage and traditions that set his apart from others..yet his use of timeless themes make the images relative to anyone who views them.
Such artists as Ernie Barnes and Norman Rockwell inspire John's style. Like Barnes, his compositions are full of movement and his characters enlongated and distorted. John's images seem to capture a snap-shot of a moment. This style of visual story-telling is inspired by the narrative style of Norman Rockwell.
