Head Study No. 1 by John Wheeler. Just a simple, soulful portrait in John's delightful primitive style. The original, painted in Acrylic on board has been repeatedly overworked and distressed. This simple and direct style has a resonance with the stylistic work of Amedeo Modigliani.
Originally a photo-real painter, John now devotes his creative energy into a more emotive, expressive form of mark-making which resonates with the character and individuality of his subjects. His work is an eclectic amalgam of early Hockney blended with essence of Modigliani and Breughel!
