John Budney

John Budney is an artist who likes to reminisce about the days he knew growing up on the east side of Buffalo. The people, places, and events of his youth figure in his work, which encompasses a broad range of imagery and ideas. John’s details with subjects such as trains and transportation, clowns and humor, landscape and atmospheric light, is mirrored by his enthusiasm for trying new materials and methods. John enjoys the variety of media he has access to and this reflects in his pastel-work, scratch-art, printmaking, and sculpture accomplishments.

John is an approachable humorous guy who gets inspired by travel. He has had many adventures, which he is chronicling in an autobiography. This deeply spiritual man stays focused through prayer and artmaking; these quiet focused moments provide him with the sense of being “under a halo”
