John Coatsworth is a popular local artist, born in Newcastle and also a Freeman of Newcastle. He is a self - taught artist and illustrator, whose main interest has always been Fine Art.
John's first job was in Turners the Photographers in Newcastle, where he was a craftsman printer. On leaving there he attended Newcastle Art College where he took a foundation course in Graphic Art. After College he worked for six months at the Hancock Museum designing and illustrating displays. Before painting professionally he worked for eight years in the Graphic Design department of The Newcastle Evening Chronicle doing visuals, illustrations and cartoons. He has painted full-time since 1986.
After years of painting traditional style John was always searching for something different and totally original. After experimenting by mixing Fine Art and Graphics, he stumbled upon this original style Curvation ( sometimes known as 'Bendy') whilst working on a small scene of Newcastle. All the other works in this original style were derived from this point in time. John has been working with this new style for over 12 years on mostly town and cityscapes.
He attributes his passion for painting the City of Newcastle to the fine architecture and lively bustling streets. His dramatic and distinctive style is in great demand and his pictures and prints of the River Tyne, Newcastle and Gateshead Quayside can be seen is various places in the North East. His work has also been sent to places such as New York, Amsterdam and Australia.
Commissioned work from Newcastle Airport, Newcastle Building Society, Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle Tourist Board, Tyne & Wear Museums and Newcastle/Gateshead Hilton enable John to embracer and develop his work further.
In December 2008 until January 2009 John had a solo exhibition for 6 weeks at Woodhorn Gallery Ashington.
John is currently producing work based on other Cities such as London, Paris, Edinburgh and York and has others planned.
