Scott St. John (tofuart)
Scott St. John (aka Tofu) is a San Francisco artist working primarily in mixed media, collage and landscape painting. In recent years his work has included maps, postcard-themed art and mail art projects. In 2013 he began a series called Collagescapes. With collagescapes, he starts by painting paper with areas of color representing the palette of a specific place. Next he cuts up the paper into hundreds of small pieces. The final steps are to randomize the pieces and then reassemble them in various geometric patterns. Collagescapes are both landscape paintings and collages. They may appear abstract, but the intent is to retain the color palette of the places they represent.
Since 1997 his work has shown in over 40 venues, primarily in California but also in other locations in the United States and abroad. His artwork can be viewed at tofuart.com
