Featured on Artaissance

Jon Sarkin is a prolific artist who creates elaborate drawings and paintings filled with words and images, and has a story like no other. After a brain hemorrhage and a stroke that nearly killed him, the once-shy ambitious chiropractor awoke with an effusive, unfocused need to create. He awoke a different man in body and spirit with an insatiable drive to draw and paint. His drive to create has produced an imaginative body of art.
Jon’s unique story has been featured on NPR, the BBC, ABC Medical Mysteries, in Vanity Fair and The Guardian, in addition to other coverage. He has also created cover art for the band Guster, and was the subject of a book by Pulitzer Prize winning author Amy Nutt.
Jon’s studio is located in Massachusetts, where he lives with his wife and three children.
