John Pothecary

John Pothecary is an artist living and working in Winchester.

He was taught by artist John Mynott and studied technical illustration in the first two years before qualifying for his final two years in graphic design.

Meeting artist Philip Sutton inspired John into working in brave bold colour, to pose an interesting fusion with abstract and semi abstract images, and to aim for an achievement of atmosphere and intrigue on the canvas.

In his capacity as an R.S.A. Art and Design Assessor and Lecturer in the 1980′s, John featured for two years in a BBC2 documentary called 'Seventeen'.

In 1992 John had a residency at The Granary in Bishops Waltham and the following year he had a residency at Horse Racing Stables in Morestead.
He also painted works of the Tour De France passing through Winchester and portraits for Portsmouth Football Club during the later nineties.

Semi abstract works of intriguing image and scenes, painted with a fusion of voluptuous colour, has lead to International Exhibitions at 'The Bricklane gallery', 'Le Dame gallery (London).

A month one man exhibition at 'The Discovery Centre' (Winchester). Inclusion in 'The Culthouse' expo's at Hoxton Arches, underdog gallery and various pop up shows in Brick Lane. John's paintings are collected in USA, France and U.K.

He attracts a large following for signed prints and commissions.
