John Meaker

John Meaker is a prolific artist, experienced teacher and lecturer. John studied at St. Albans, Goldsmiths College and the Royal Academy Schools. His paintings combine human and mythic dramas, and abstract composition.

As a teacher it is my task to help develop in each student/artist a unique and independent process of work using appropriate classical or modernist skills and techniques.

My work is inspired by the mythic narratives and human insights of Poussin and Blake; the visualization occurring in the experiments of Alexander Cozens and the spirit of gestural expression in the work of Willem De Kooning.
