John Dubrow (born 1958) is an American painter.[1][2]


John Dubrow was born in Salem, Massachusetts in 1958.[3][4][5] He attended Syracuse University, the Camberwell College of Arts in London, and the San Francisco Art Institute.[1][3][4] His early influences include the Bay Area Figurative Movement, especially Richard Diebenkorn, David Park and Bruce McGaw, and the abstract expressionist Julius Hatofsky.[1][5]

He has painted rooftops in New York City and Jerusalem, and portraits, including William Bailey and Mark Strand.[1][2][6] While painting his portraits, the subjects are allowed to move and talk to him.[1] Instead of a sketchbook, he uses an iPad, then completes his paintings in his studio in New York City.[1]

Since the 1980s, his work has been exhibited at the Lori Bookstein Fine Art, the Salander- O'Reilly Galleries, the Contemporary Realist Gallery in San Francisco, etc.[2][3][4][5][6]
