Public Art

John has been painting public surfaces and walls for quite some time, beginning with his time at Sydney Airport in the 80's. He would wag his shifts and paint life size caricatures of his co workers on the walls within the terminal.

Since then there have been several, and the structures he is painting are getting bigger! Below is timeline of images of his public works, chronologically from the most recent through to early works in Lightning Ridge and the region.
