John David Anderson

John David Anderson (Nov. 25, 1932 – Nov. 13, 2011) was a painter who combined surrealism and abstract expressionism to create paintings that embody automatism or “spontaneous painting”, with an emphasis on the inner psychic realms of the mind. Anderson was mentored by Gordon Onslow Ford, who was a part of the 1930’s Paris surrealist group surrounding Andre Breton.
