Oil on Canvas



John Klein is an Australian artist based in Sydney. With a background in film and television, arts management and marketing, John has been engaged in creative pursuits for his entire career. Although he didn’t start to exhibit his work until 2012, he has always been passionate about painting. John regularly employs the use of strong colour and draws inspiration largely from nature with birds, animals and flowers featuring heavily in his work. John is a big fan of Art Deco and pieces from his collection often find themselves in his still life paintings. John works from a home studio that he built in his attic. A quirky, light-filled space with lovely tree-top views – a great place to spend time creating art. John regularly stages solo exhibitions, participates in group shows and has been a finalist in the Mosman, Hornsby, Lane Cove and Northbridge Art prizes to name a few. He was a semi-finalist in the highly competitive Doug Moran National Portrait Prize in 2017 and the Kennedy Prize in 2018. His paintings are held in private collections in Italy, France, Germany, USA, United Kingdom and throughout Australia.
