Meet John Bicknell of Greece..
Oil paint, John Bicknell’s preferred medium, offers freedom in his artistic thinking. Through his extensive studies in Fine Art at University of the Creative Arts Farnham, University of East London, and The Slade School, University College London, John knew he was an artist.
John notes that in his art, the simplest solutions require the greatest research and concentration, and deliver the most profound results.
Grey, John’s favourite colour, allows images to breathe. Widely exhibited across Europe, John lives and works in Athens.
His work during the eighties and nineties centred on an exploration of abstraction and landscape. More recent work has developed a figurative narrative drawn from wide ranging sources and influences including film, theatre, the history of painting, and photo-journalism. He has worked in collaboration with artists, film-makers and actors.
Today, John Bicknell is not only painting but is currently working on his 2nd film from his Athens based studio.
