John was born In Newark New Jersey, in 1929, into a family of 12 brothers and sisters.

After a career in design and teaching, he moved to Maine to devote full time to his art.  John worked in mediums including collage, sculpture, acrylics & photography.  John constantly explored the relationship between color, light and form.  He has created multitudinous works that includes landscape, seascape and still life.  John was a master colorist.  Through the use of color he brings the elements of surprise and delight to his work. 

​Archipelago will be showing his paintings, collages, prints and large wood inlay pieces that are celebrations of a well-lived life.

All proceeds from sales go to the John Bisignano fund through the Maine Community Foundation. John’s heartfelt wish in life was to create a foundation for aspiring young artists who do not have the resources for college and this fund is set up for that purpose.
