work by John West Sant on reclaimed canvasI am a painter draftsman and writer from Los Angeles California. I studied painting at the Rhode Island School of Design and graduated in the spring of 2016. After moving to Philadelphia, I have painted almost entirely on repurposed canvases from Resource Exchange. This has been fantastic, as stretching and preparing canvases can be a lengthy, labor intensive process and materials can be very expensive when purchased new.

Though the subject of the painting is always altered, I find myself responding to, and sometimes keeping, the colors and shapes existent on the canvas I have purchased. I have also used RE to find source images that have translated in various ways into the content of my paintings.
