English-born semi-abstract artist John Button leads a 3-day workshop focusing on acrylic painting and still life. John will demonstrate his n0-nonsense approach to drawing, perspective, composition, color and texture together with his joy of ignoring conventional rules of painting. Students will work mostly in acrylics on board, but there'll be opportunity for exploring other media such as charcoal, pencil, pastel, etc.
The goals for the workshop are to break free from constraints and rules which may hold many artists back and to create a new, fresh and cohesive body of work.
Born in Lowestoft, Suffolk, John grew up on England’s east coast. He studied Architecture in Brighton and worked for many years with exhibition design, interiors and illustration. After moving to Sweden with his young family, John began painting and exhibiting more actively. In his paintings, he explores landscape and seascape through its patterns and textures, attempting to trigger a memory or a sense of place and ignoring conventional rules of perspective along the way. In his still-life studies, John tries to tease something extraordinary out of his everyday surroundings.
