John McCracken (1934-2011) was an American artist associated with the Minimalist movement of the 1960s. He is best known for his sleek, brightly colored sculptures, which often feature highly polished surfaces and simple geometric shapes.

McCracken studied art at the California College of Arts and Crafts and later at the University of California, Berkeley. In the 1960s, he began creating the type of sculpture that he would become known for, using industrial materials such as fiberglass, plywood, and aluminum.

McCracken's sculptures are characterized by their smooth, highly reflective surfaces and their precise, geometric forms. They often have a monumental presence, despite their often small size. Some of his most famous works include his "planks," which are tall, narrow sculptures that resemble minimalist versions of traditional totem poles.

Throughout his career, McCracken's work was exhibited extensively in galleries and museums around the world. His influence can be seen in the work of many contemporary artists working in the Minimalist and Post-Minimalist styles.
