John Harmer

John attended Bournemouth and Poole College of Art and Design where he received a distinction (HND) in Illustration. Since graduating in 1992, he has been a practicing painter and illustrator. He has shown his work in numerous exhibitions and has twice been accepted for The National Open Art Competition (happily selling his work on both occasions!). John‘s work is currently inspired by movie stills and in particular the work of ‘matte’ painters from the 1950s onwards, as well as retro science fiction cover artwork from books, magazines, posters etc. He mostly works in acrylic on paper but has recently started using an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil — he is still in the experimental stage but is excited with the early results!View Full Bio
