Biography

Born 1983
Lives and Works in Kent, England

Alex John’s work comprises of energy rich contemporary colourscapes executed with a recognisable, vibrant and textured style reminiscent of Abstract Expressionism. He was influenced by his studies of the rich colours and giant simplified forms in Georgia O’Keeffe’s work and the thick and heavy use of texture in the work of Frank Auerbach. His love of the beautiful English countryside and inspiration from the natural world is conveyed in his skilful use of acrylic paint on canvas.

Alex John discovered his passion for painting in his mid teens. After completing his art, design and photography studies in 2001 his dream of painting professionally began to take shape. From working in a small garage space at the back of his childhood home, he began taking commissions and exhibiting in a local gallery. By the age of 21 Alex John graduated to his current large studio space enabling him to work on an expansive scale and use the space as a gallery to showcase work.
