John Lines RBSA RSMA was born in 1938 in Rugby, Warwickshire. He studied art at Rugby Polytechnic from 1959 and then at York School of Art from 1961 to 1962. He has been exhibiting his contemporary paintings since leaving art school. His style is very much Modern British and his preferred media for painting is oils. As an artist, his stated aim is to “Simply paint through honest eyes”. Ample evidence of this approach can be seen in his paintings of Welsh town and landscape subjects. His art captures the nostalgia, romance, beauty and humour of the British countryside and, unusually, British urban life. Lines is equally successful painting landscapes, marine, portrait, transportation or what will in future years be seen as fine, social records of urban life. He travels extensively to find the right scenes for his paintings. Favourite locations include Wales, Northern vistas, East and West Midlands and Yorkshire. John Lines has paintings in private and public art collections throughout the world. He has held workshops and lectures in the UK, Australia and USA. He has had many notable art successes including: First Prize - Museum of Modern Art, Wales; First Prize - Royal Society of Marine Artists and Awards at the RSBA. Lines has also featured as Master Class Painter in International Artist magazine. His work is always in demand and increasingly collectable.
