JOHN LINES

John Lines was born in 1938 in Rugby, Warwickshire. He studied Art at Rugby Polytechnic from 1959 and then at York School of Art. John has been exhibiting his contemporary paintings since leaving art school, but initially his time was shared between art activities and working in industry. John's paintings are distinctive and beautifully painted. His style is very much Modern British and John prefers paintings in oil and watercolours. As an artist his stated aim is to "simply paint through honest eyes. Ample evidence of this approach can be seen in his paintings of British Town and Landscape subjects.

His art captures humour, nostalgia, romance and the beauty of British countryside and unusually British urban life. John is equally successful paintings landscapes, marine, portrait, transportation or what will in future years be seen as fine, social records of urban life.
