ABOUT JOHN LANCASHIRE
Local artist, John Lancashire emigrated to Australia with his family from England as a young boy. He briefly attended art school in Sydney but is largely self-taught, developing his own very distinctive impressionist style of painting. John, also known as The Monday Painter, moved to New Zealand over 15 years ago and is the owner-operator of Pearl, a popular Napier hair salon. John currently divides his time between the salon and the studio.
"I primarily make paintings using oil on canvas. The imagery in my paintings stems from my response to things; ideas that I become slightly obsessed with, it could be a particular colour, a shape, a phrase. I store them somewhere. The mechanical act of painting, or making a mark, brings them out. At the time I believe I know what I'm painting, but I don’t think I ever do."
