About The Artist

johnJohn Afflick was born in 1967 in Liverpool, Merseyside.

After serving in the British Army for 3 years he studied Fine Art at Liverpool John Moores University.

His work is predominantly inspired by renaissance painters and is immaculately finished using traditional techniques, often concentrating on fascinating and alluring figures sometimes with a humorous or hidden narrative.

John has exhibited extensively and has been shortlisted for and received many awards, including ‘Not the Turner Prize’, Mall Galleries, London (2004), ‘The Football Prize’, The Lowry, Manchester (2006), ‘Regional Finalist,’ Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year (2013) and’ Winner of the Best Portrait Award, West Lancashire Open Exhibition (2013). His 12 foot altar-piece on permanent display in ‘The Church Of The Holy Innocents’ Hammersmith, London, has been very much acclaimed and is a testament to his unique artistic ability.

“I use a very traditional method of painting which is systematically constructed from start to finish and is reminiscent in practice to the Great Master painters. On a handmade toned gesso ground, I draw the image in ink which is then heightened by egg tempera white and finished with glazes made with a hand purified sun thickened oil. It’s very exclusive and while time consuming; this process allows me to control every aspect of the painting’s creation.”
