Johnny Pell is a prolific artist whose work is both figurative and abstract. Often inspired by nature and people, he regularly creates large scale paintings of scenic landscapes and life-size and larger-than-life figures of animals and people. He also makes smaller drawings of instinctively interconnected shapes and patterns using charcoal, ink and paint pens. His use of vibrant colour is confident, considered and joyful. There is a beautiful synergism between the dynamic movement of his work and the way he moves around the studio clearly enjoying his work.
