This auction is raising proceeds for The Hepatitis C Trust.
John Stark emerged as an innovator in the dark undercurrent of London’s contemporary art scene, integrating styles and themes from recent and past artistic traditions to form his own system of meaning. His paintings of enigmatic figures in hauntingly beautiful landscapes often reflect an ill-fated world struggling with the dissonance of spirituality, materiality, religion and science.
John Stark graduated from Royal Academy Schools, London in 2004, and University of West England, Bristol in 2001.
The artist has exhibited at the following international venues: Institute of Contemporary Arts, The Mall, London and John Moores Painting Prize – National Museums Liverpool, - Marta Herford Museum, Herford, Germany, - Berlin, Kunst Museum Bochum and Villa Jauss Kunsthaus, Oberstdorf, Germany, and The Hyundai in Seoul, South Korea.
