What makes JP's art amazing
John Paul fits neatly into the category of artist who is shy, reclusive and self-critical: a far cry from the pop-culture personalities like Andy Warhol and ego-maniacs such as Pablo Picasso. However, he shares one common attribute with the afore-mentioned artists: an affinity for the same dog. There is a certain little dachshund that enjoys lazing about the sunbeams in studio; and will gladly follow JP outdoors on his plein-air painting excursions (but only if there is a biscuit in his pocket).
We would like to invite you to check out John Paul’s online collection. All of the images are of past works that have been sold; most are available for purchase in print form.
John Paul is well respected in the local art community and his devoted followers (and critics) look forward to his annual group exhibition at the Bahamas National Trust Wine and Art Festival every October.
JP has also produced many successful one-man exhibitions and taken part in other group exhibitions at Chub Cay Club, Berry Islands, The Abaco Art Festival and The Transforming Spaces Art Studio Tour in Nassau. He has also been featured as an artist in books such as Destination Bahamas and the Hotel Visitor’s Guide.
JP’s work has been published in various magazines, books and brochures; but most notably on cover of the most widely distributed publication in the country - The Bahamas Telephone Directory.
JP’s paintings feature throughout The Bahamas from people’s homes, to prominent positions in large hotels. Visitors will see his large collection of prints in local gift shops; they can also see six large oil paintings of his hanging in the ballroom and reception of the Sheraton Cable Beach Resort. If a guest was learning to dive at Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort, she may have prematurely held her breath upon glimpsing the tangible underwater mural at the poolside.
Over at Atlantis on Paradise Island, many yachtsmen have seen JP’s fantasy painting akin to the Atlantis theme hanging over the reception desk.
