Marketing Manager by day, artist by night, John Klein is a Sydney based artist who creates works full of colour and texture.
With a background in film and television and Arts Management, John has been engaged in creative pursuits for his entire career. His work is accessible and sits comfortably in contemporary homes. 'I am very aware of interior design trends and consider this when planning new work,’ he says.
Completing a solo exhibition a year, John’s subject matter changes regularly. As he says, ‘I find myself drawn to diverse themes and areas of interest [but] flowers and animals are reoccurring themes.’
John works from a home studio that he built in his attic. ‘It is a quirky, light-filled space with lovely tree-top views,’ he says, ‘a great place to spend time creating art.’ He favours painting in acrylic, noting the quick drying time, vibrant colours as well as the textural quality.
