John Moore

John uses various myths and legends to endorse his bright and vivid imagery. Through his passion for the mystical, we observe the subtle and secretive world of our natural habitat.

John’s work has evolved into conceptual imagery which he creates on one of South Africa’s largest printing press housed in his studio in Fourways, Johannesburg. John is enthusiastic about creating large-scale work with immense detailed imagery.

John’s inspiration is gleaned from “experiencing life, in all its forms” and he brings his ideas to life through the media of etchings, linocuts, lithographs, pastels and woodblocks.

Moore’s art has exceeded average market value growth since he started creating work in the 1990’s. The artist’s work has been purchased as an investment by South African Banks, namely ABSA Bank, African Bank, First National Bank, Rand Merchant Bank and The South African Reserve Bank Art. John’s work has also been sought after by The MTN Art Collection, The Sasol Art Collection and the Telkom Art Collection, to name a few.

Moore is an artist whose reputable work and technical expertise is studied in the South African schooling system by art students under the Printmaker’s section.

John continues to share his knowledge and passion for teaching the arts by offering short courses to both adults and children and also offers internships for artists wishing to specialise in printmaking.

Moore continues to create original art for exhibitions each year, gaining popularity and value with each show.
