Artist Biography

John has built up an award winning reputation for his unique interpretations of monkeys and birds. All his paintings are characterised by their rich colours, strong decorative qualities and anthropomorphic elements, with each bird or animal taking on human characteristics; with some looking angry or melancholic while others look joyful or mischievous.
His art tries to deal with a number of paradoxes; how to produce images that can be both playful and serious, abstract and figurative, complex yet simple.
