"Desiderata" (Latin: "things desired") is a 1927 prose poem by the American writer Max Ehrmann.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
----------------------------
Born in New York City in 1953, John DeAmicis spent most of his childhood in central New Jersey, attending local schools including Seton Hall and Rutgers University.

Realizing he had an instinctive desire to draw and create, John decided to fulfill his true calling. With some encouragement from his wife, Lynn, John entered a local art show. The response to his work was overwhelmingly positive. Testing the waters at some NYC exhibitions brought a similar response. From then on, he was on his way.

John has been commissioned by many corporations including Pepsi Cola, IBM, ABC TV, the Dr. Seuss estate, the Rockefeller Group, and other individuals who sought out his unique style of artwork.

John’s drawings and illustrations have been compared to Charles Bragg and Daumier. He depicted his unusual interpretations of common situations and clichés by creating complex and sophisticated satirical art pieces. Fanciful lines flowed from his pens and pencils in an antic parade. A keen observer of life, John tended to zero-in on society’s idiosyncratic elements when practicing his brand.

A member of the National Cartoonists Society, John has had work in major galleries around the world.

John sadly passed away on October 13th, 2023.
