John Orlando Birt


13-14 September 2018 - at the Gap

15-16 September 2018 -at the Hub

A dedicated artist traveller and preferring to paint en plein air John reflects in his work a pursuit of artistic integrity from his drawing skills, due to his early academic training in industrial design, to his meticulous compositional ability and his unique approach in capturing light, air and space.

" It is the challenge of capturing the changing moods that light creates across the day and it's subsequent effects on the surroundings such as buildings the countryside and water” John says “Painting on location ensures that the essence of the subject remains the first priority, especially the subtleties, nuances and tempo of that particular region.

John travels to Europe each year during the spring/summer to paint the historically rich landscapes that he feels so passionate about.

John has held 27 solo exhibitions, 3 in Venice Italy at a prestigious Gallery in San Marco, and when in Venice he has been invited to lecture at the University of Architecture on drawing and perspective. 

John's paintings are featured in many collections in Europe, the USA and Japan.
