British artist: John Lines - painting 'Cauliflower Sunday'

The latest Red Rag art exhibition starts tomorrow 7 June. It features the art works of British artist John Lines

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 Lines has contemporary paintings in private and public art collections throughout the world. He has held workshops and lectures in Australia and USA. Lines also regularly holds lectures, workshops and demonstrations throughout the British Isles

John Lines work is always in demand and increasingly collectable. His art works are now available at Red Rag Gallery as Limited Edition Prints. Click here to view John Lines Limited Edition Prints

In addition to Red Rag British Art Gallery John Lines has exhibited at many other leading British Art Galleries. Each painting at Red Rag is sourced from the John Lines artist studio and like all Red Rag British art and Contemporary art it can be shipped worldwide.
