John Dell

John studied art at A-level, at the same time creating the graphics for a computer game he wrote with his brother.  He  left school in 1996 and fell in and out of Architecture and Art College towards the end of the nineties.

John went on to Illustrate a book, hitch-hiked between some of Europe’s major art galleries, and learnt how to run a bar. Realising by the end of the noughties he needed a proper job, he  taught himself CAD and began life as a professional draughtsman for a consultant civil engineer. Putting  art to one side, he continued working in order to  secure a career.

After 10 years john returned to painting and realised he should never have left. HIs  painting style is strongly influenced by John Sargent, the Impressionists, Delacroix, Velázquez, Goya, Tiepolo, and Raphael. HIs interest is as much in the application of paint, its build up and narrative qualities, as in the structure and draughtsmanship of the human figure.

John's fascination with dance grew from his study of animation for digital media.  He has  left the video games behind but his interest in human motion remains. In his paintings we see how John renders in his subject a timeless elegance and grace  by his use of subtle tonalities, shapes and rythmical brushstrokes which convey a sense of movement, the raison d'etre of his work.
