Artist John Kraft was born in Los Angeles in 1967. After graduating in 1989 with degrees in both Mechanical and Marine Engineering, John decided to pursue an artistic path. Throughout the 1990s he developed a style and visual vocabulary punctuated by bright colors and whimsical themes. He was selected as a featured artist by Apple in 2001, and his art has been included in Better Homes and Gardens, The Artful Home and Modern Painters. He has received coverage by the San Francisco Chronicle, Huffington Post, Los Angeles Times, 7×7 and MacWorld UK.

In both 2010 and 2018 John was selected to create a large heart for Hearts in SF, which benefits the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation (SFGHF). The heart John created in 2018 was featured on the cover of the February issue of Where Magazine and purchased by Genentech.

John has participated in the Amsterdam based Project eARTh, and his work has been featured in live auctions for the San Francisco Firefighters Cancer Prevention Foundation and ArtSpan. John has exhibited his work at companies like Intel and Autodesk and his art can also be found in the permanent collections of companies like Genentech and Kaiser Permanente.
