Carsten John was born in 1975 in Gehrden near Hannover and grew up in Springe. He graduated from high school in Hildesheim and lived for seven years in Hannover.
After a period of orientation, Carsten John began a dual study program as an administrative specialist at the City of Hannover, where he most recently worked as a management economist (B.A.) at the divisional level in the Facility Management department.
After moving back to Springe in the meantime, he now lives and works as a freelance artist.
To this day, he has spent his life studying psychology, philosophy and biology. For Carsten John, these disciplines are the cornerstones of art and interplay with each other. They are reflected in all of his artistic work.
Artistic creation is his vocation and art is now his passion.
