John von der Lieth, a Charleston artist, specializes in pencil and colored pencil drawings. His striking works rendered in a surrealistic style with a highly refined tonal characteristic, combine a variety of human and animal figures set against geometric shapes. His drawings have been referred to by some as having an ethereal quality.

John studied art and mathematics at the College of Charleston in the 70s, where his style was greatly influenced by several local artists; artists whose styles aren't the normal Charleston offering. Although his earlier works were executed in black and white, he slowly broadened his range by experimenting with ways to achieve similar effects in color. He refined the use of colored pencils to achieve a luminosity with a controlled detail which he feels is unobtainable with watercolors.

John is a member of the Charleston Artist Guild and also a member of the Colored Pencil Society of America. The CPSA has established as its objective the elevation of colored pencil art to the acceptance level of other fine art mediums. Along with 1000 or so colored pencil artists across the U.S, that is his objective also.

Nostalgic Sensuality
Original pencil drawing by John von der Lieth. Description: The artist's reflections on those things that add sensitivity, sensuality, and a sense of being alive, an awareness of the world around us, speaking to our inner longings.

We are nostalgic for that sense of wonder from our youth, for those things that could take us to our future with that same aliveness.
