John Evans

John Evans started to paint in 1981 under the guidance of Peter Coate, RWA, whose motto was ‘paint what you see’.

He soon became fascinated by medieval painters who didn't understand perspective, but wanted to depict an event in history that captured as much information as possible. "This meant that figures, buildings, landscapes etc. were out of proportion to each other, but captured the whole event in a single picture." John often paints in a two dimensional style and works with "two horizons", where he changes the proportions so that everything he considers to be relevant fits into the picture, regardless of perspective.

Originally from Coventry, John is now based in the West Country, and has exhibited at the RWA, Bristol.

John has become a sought after painter and his work is in many collections, including the Permanent Collection, Palace of Westminster, and also in Canada, Germany, Japan and the USA.
