John Hamilton

1967 –

John has exhibited widely, including one man shows at The Salford Museum and The Lowry Hotel. He has written and illustrated a succesful children’s book, The Boy who Really, Really Loves Lizards and is currently finishing the follow up book, The Girl who Really, Really Loves Dinosaurs.

John describes his own work thus: “I like to compare the work to stills from a play or a film. A snaposhot from a photograph album. A captured moment. What has happened before it or what happens next, only the viewer knows. Every picture tells a story, but I want you to be the story teller – I want you to decide what is happening. Some of the characters appear mysterious and sinister, while others appear to be relaxed and at ease, but  it is not always easy to tell which is which”.
