Welcome to my
Spring Art Exhibition 2021
John Bateson - artist
I am a freelance artist living with my family in Brixton in south east London. I grew up here , went to school at the local grammar school, and a number of my pictures draw their inspiration from the locality
Painting is in my blood. My mother, my grandmother and my grandfather were all keen painters, and it was from them that I first learned how to draw and paint .
I see painting and printing as a form of exploration; you may have an idea where you are heading but you never quite know where you are going to end up. This is what makes the whole process so exciting.
I am showing work at Our Lady of Sorrows church at
246 Fulham Road London SW10 9EL
