JOHN SMYTH'S FREE ARTIST PORTFOLIO


I was born and raised in Fort William, on the West Coast of Scotland. In 1996 I moved to Aberdeen to study painting at Grays School of Art. I now currently reside and paint in Arbroath on the east coast of scotland.

I have found that the paintings I most admire are usually figurative which has influenced me to pursue that discipline with my own work. It is not my sole interest however. I use Abstract elements varying from simple sheets of colour to textured impasto and decorative pattern to complement the figure. These abstract elements may work simply as a background or may encrouch over the figure creating a more dynamic interplay between the abstract and the real. I feel that the contrast between the highly disciplined pursuit of naturalistic figurative painting and the freedom of working with abstraction provides balance in my work on both a visual and conceptual level.

The works currently on display on my page are examples of recent paintings in which I have been experimenting with a mosaic tile effect....
