Racquel Bianca John (b. In Bronx, New York) is a self-taught geometric abstraction painter based in Atlanta, Georgia. She discovered her painting abilities while taking a High School design class. Not knowing what the course would entail Racquel began to develop her style through shapes (mostly lines). The teacher took notice of Racquel's eye for design and encouraged her to apply for AP art (Advance Placement Art), which she did. Racquel was accepted into the class, and from there she drew a passion and appreciation for art. She was in AP Art for the last two years of High School and received a Fine Arts seal on her diploma.
Through the years Racquel continued to develop her style and explore new ways to her work. During the beginning stages of her work, she only painted in black and white. She felt that working with those colors brought more meaning to it. The foundation of Racquel's technique is precision, which helps her create clean and beautiful paintings. Her work mostly consists of infusing geometric shapes with linear designs.
Racquel is currently working on a ten piece series where she explores color within deign.
