John Schettino is an artist who uses drawing and the properties of three dimensional materials to inquire into landscape as an entanglement of wild and cultivated worlds. His current work questions what constitutes nature and foregrounds temporality and memory. His work has been exhibited in traditional gallery and museum settings including The National Arts Club, Washington Square Windows at Washington Square Park and The Bergen Museum of Art and Science. He has been awarded a residency at The Ragdale Foundation and selected for the annual New York public art project Art in Odd Places (AiOP). Schettino has exhibited in numerous temporary, ephemeral, outdoor and urban settings and his street art in protest of the 2004 Republican National Convention, in New York City, has been published in the Burbridge book “Sticker Shock”, by Matthew Kraus. For over ten years Schettino has been an annual critic in the Parsons/New School MFA Design & Technology Thesis Program. He has a BFA from The Cooper Union and lives and works in New York City.
