An Australian Painter currently based in Seoul, South Korea. John Kaye has been painting for 15 years. "It was a gradual process, The more I learn and the more I paint the more it becomes part of me.For me personally, art began as a way to escape reality, until eventually, it became something to believe in."
John’s art stems from an early fascination with graffiti. Travelling and graffiti have both been huge parts of his life. His work responds to personal experience and the influences of his travels. These paintings were all developed while I was living in Copenhagen in 2016, They were built from my notes and sketches and I painted them all in my studio on the Gold Coast over the summer of 2017-18. In my opinion, they encapsulate the ideas of love, loss, fragility and motion.
