Ever since John Padlo can remember, he has always been drawn to primary colors and fascinated by the mechanical world. Toys, mannequins, UFOs, hot rods, pulp and science fiction gravitate toward his inner child and become playful subjects in his artwork. Padlo creates art and paints because he feels compelled to.
