John Pulinat completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from FIT, State University of New York with honors (cum laude). Post-graduation, he started his freelance artistic career while continuing studies in digital media.



Before his immigration to United States, he successfully finished a five year course From Ravi Varma College of Fine Arts, Kerala, India. He went to Visva-Bharati University (Santiniketan) Calcutta to stay as a hermitage student. Returning full of inspiration, he became an active participant in the art community in Kerala. In addition, he worked as a permanent art teacher in the government department of education high schools, and as an art instructor in the Navodaya central school system in India. He has been a freelance Illustrator designer and fine art painter since 1991 when he moved to the USA and settled in New York City.



With the millenniumís arrival, a digital revolution was rapidly changing the art field. He realized the role of the artist /illustrator/ designer in today's culture was in dramatic flux. The new environment, while exciting and challenging, demanded an entrepreneurial spirit. His concentration shifted to experimentation with new technologies and modes of expression.



Continuing his studies to stay abreast, he entered an intensive program in Computer Graphics and Design. During this time, he studied techniques for creating different graphic vehicles in digital media. Expanding upon computer skills, he took several digital courses in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Quark, Painter, After Effects, Director, HTML, and Dream Weaver, Movie editing with Final cut pro, sound track, etc. Creating art work in these new mediums has afforded him avenues of expression that are virtually unlimited.



Pulinat represented FIT at the National Arts Club Year 2000 painting competition. His work was among the top twenty best works chosen from six hundred collegiate competitors nationwide. F.I.T selected his artwork for promotional video and fundraising postcards for the FIT alumni association.


Through affiliation with Queens Public Television in spring 2007, he became a certified producer in field production.


He performs digital or conventional tasks (such as watercolor, oil paint, gauche, acrylic, pastels and ink wash etc..) that are necessary to complete a project, and has the ability to observe and clarify the clientís message with clean and effective work by successfully translating communication needs from a rough idea to finished pieces. He developed three styles in illustration (painterly, line and wash, signature) which can synchronize with clients needs.
