John is deeply attuned to the energy and emotional resonance of his subjects and demonstrates a love of colour throughout much of his work. He has works in a variety of styles; he expresses stories, memories, demons and harsh truths as well as the beauty, colours and resilience of a conflicted world. His large-scale ‘black graffiti’ paintings resulting from visits, after the wake of terrorist attacks, to London tread the line between order and chaos with the use of vibrant colours. His ‘flamenco’ paintings reveal his skill as an artist and his inspiration from the sounds and rhythms of experiences in Brazil. He uses vivid blues and reds for paintings of the Welsh coastline, suggesting that John paints the colours he is feeling as opposed to the colours he sees.
