Australian contemporary visual artist, Timothy John has been exhibiting professionally since 1979.

He has shown in some of Australia's finest commercial galleries, with the occasional 'sojourn' onto the international scene.

‘Discovered’ by leading Australian art entrepreneur, collector and gallerist, Kim Bonython, in the late 70’s, John has gone on to be a respected member of the Australian art scene, with contributions on a local and national level.

John's oeuvre encompasses the subtlety of the Australian landscape's transient moods, from the vibrancy of the vast expansive emptiness of the interior, to the silent unfolding romantic and lyrical beauty of coastal scenes, he records his emotional response to the landscape with a 'layering' of aesthetic beauty and deep philosophical and intellectual resonance.

A self taught artist, he holds a Masters Degree in Visual Art, from the University of South Australia, which he attained after being invited to study in 1998.

He has work in many private and public collections throughout Australia, Asia, Europe and the United States of America.
