John Colby (born 1955)

John Colby was born in the Boston area. At the age of eighteen, he sustained a head injury and multiple body traumas. Colby spent many years in therapeutic rehabilitation programs before attending Gateway Arts in 1990. Colby is an interesting conversationalist with an unusual sense of humor. Drawing with ball point pen, he creates abstract images with thousands of delicate lines that weave and overlap until they all but fill the page. In addition to his talent as a visual artist, he writes poetry. Colby’s work has been exhibited at the Gateway Gallery in Brookline, as well as other galleries in Massachusetts. His work was also represented at the Outsider Art Fair in New York City in 1999 and 2004.
