Tell us a little bit about yourself?
My name is John Brendan Guinan and I am an artist from Washington, D.C. I grew up in Washington and come from a family of social justice activists. My father was an activist, author and playwright who founded CCNV (The Community for Creative Nonviolence). I view art as a vocation and never had any intention of becoming a professional artist. It has been a calling and necessity for me.
