One of the most British of British artists is John Lines. John produces paintings and and Limited Edition Prints of real honesty and integrity. His art works are the result of careful observation and skilful painting. It is little wonder he is in such demand with art groups and art societies across the UK to give art talks.

Red Rag have been showing paintings and Limited Edition prints from John Lines for many years. Now the relationship has been further strengthened with the appointment of Red Rag as agents for John’ art work.

John Lines paintings are distinctive and beautifully painted. His style is very much Modern British and Lines prefers painting in oil and watercolours. 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 British Town and Landscapes subjects.
John Lines paintings are varied. His art captures humour, nostalgia, romance and the beauty of 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. John travels extensively to find the right British scenes for his paintings.
