John Wilsher

Paintings in acrylics and mixed media, figurative and semi-abstract, vibrant portraits and landscapes. Cards and prints as well as original paintings.

I paint mainly in acrylics but often also use modelling gels, texture paste, gesso etc. I have painted many portraits of singers and musicians, and now paint more landscapes, inspired by the Peak District and other places I have visited. Recently I have been working on a series of paintings of Sheffield and the Sheffield/Rotherham canal. Last September I had a solo exhibition (entitled City of Sanctuary) at Exchange Place studios, to raise funds for Assist Sheffield, who support asylum seekers, and with whom I have volunteered for about 6 years.
