Magazine Art Blog from Cornwall

Figurative painting breathes life into a canvas. It brings the human experience into focus with strokes and colour. By examining influential artists and iconic pieces, we unlock the narrative power of figurative painting that has captivated audiences for generations.
British artist John Dyer found his inspiration for painting whilst in the Amazon rainforest of Brazil in 1989. Tropical plants, with their energetic and dynamic shapes, have informed the artist's paintings ever since. In the early 1990s, the artist returned to his native Cornwall, where he had grown up as Cornwall benefits from the Gulf Stream warm water current that wells up in the Gulf of Mexico and transports the heat to the far-off coast of Cornwall. This heat has allowed many Caribbean and sub-tropical plants to thrive in the region providing John Dyer with endless tropical and Caribbean wall art inspiration.
