John Dreyfuss employs classical tools and techniques to create works in bronze, steel, iron, and, more recently, composite materials used in the aerospace industry. His work is grounded in the study of animal and architectural forms, with an emphasis on the refinement and adaptation of three-dimensional structures over time and space. His training in both architecture and sculpture found a poetic fusion in the essential duality of his work, where abstracted lines blend seamlessly with the lifelike shapes and textures intrinsic to sculptural realism. Dreyfuss studied at the University of Pennsylvania School of Architecture, Philadelphia, and the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, Cambridge, Massachusetts. He has exhibited extensively in the United States and abroad.
