John Monks - The Studio

In the history of art the word ‘Studio’ conjures a place of romance tinged with a sense of mythic struggle: the titanic epic of the production of art.

The process of creating a work of art is often a solitary occupation. The studio becomes symptomatic of a space that assists and nurtures the atmosphere required to allow creativity to thrive. It is the stage the artist sets for each individual narrative that he creates.

John Monks is known as one of the most committed and inspired figurative painters of his generation. Painting with an infinite vigour, Monks is fascinated by the transformation of paint into light and form on the canvas. Nowadays, Monks divides his time between two studios based in London and France.
