What’s your creative response right now? | John Quigley
Do you turn on or tune out? John Quigley assembles thousands of humans to creatively respond en masse to the world they see while calling for the world in which they wish to live. Artist, activist, humanist, John catches the world’s attention through these community collaborative art installations in places calling attention to global causes.
John Quigley is an internationally known Artist, Producer, and Activist. He fills the need for communities to express their dreams while addressing urgent issues. His unique mix of human installation, aerial photography, and political activism brings together communities to create large-scale human messages for common good. Focusing on themes of health, human rights, social justice, ecological balance, democracy, and freedom, these collaborations liberate spirit, inspire unity, and activate creativity through participation.
His work, human pointilism, is about people, what they love, beauty, and connecting with nature. John emphasizes the powerful moment they’re about to experience…hundreds to thousands of people co-creating these giant forms, overriding personal obstacles about participating, bonding in the experience, setting new lenses of possibility, pouring love into their momentary pictograph for the 21st Century, calling viewers to act.
