John Lancashire was born in England and emigrated to Sydney as a young boy. Despite his obvious artistic talent, he struggled at art school and it wasn’t until many years later in New Zealand, that Lancashire took up the brush again. Over time he has built a reputation as a serious artist with his distinctive expressionist-style. His oil on canvas still life paintings emanate warmth and humanity, creating something fresh and startling.
John Lancashire works at Gallery Te Puna include oil on canvas original paintings.
