John Will: The Sage and the Wise Guy

John Will Pune, India 1992

Calgary artists John Will and Chris Cran go way back and have probably shared an art-world joke or two over the years. This just might make Cran the perfect person to delve into Will’s irreverent, if informed, brand of art-making, and he does so with aplomb in our spring 2010 print edition feature “The Iconoclast.” Will’s roles range from painterly sage to wise guy and art-world outsider—a wry balance typified by a Will quip in Cran’s article: “You know how it is. Academics, like potheads, think every idea they have is special.” That broad swath of expression is gathered up here in a special online portfolio of Will’s work from 1992 to the present.
