Doyle, was born in Chicago, Illinois, in 1939. He received his bachelor's degree at the Art Institute of Chicago, and his master's degree at Northern Illinois University. John L. Doyle's art reflects his fascination with the human condition. For over a decade, previous to creating the art displayed below, Doyle studied ethnology and anthropology. The product of this study is a visual recording of what Doyle learned and set down in drawings. The drawings became the foundation for a series of lithographs which developed into a life's work art project which Doyle titled The Great Human Race. The art visually records categorical statements about civilization. The presentation is about the cultural development of particular disciplines. Doyle has had more than 50 one man national exhibitions, participated in more than 30 national and international group exhibitions, and is the recipient of more than 32 awards, including purchase prizes. He is listed in Falk's Who Was Who in American Art. He died on March 14, 2010, in Burnesville, North Carolina.
