Sold at Auction: John Kindness



John Kindness (born Belfast, Northern Ireland, 1951) is an Irish artist working a range of media including sculpture and painting. His work often contrasts material, image and reference in an unusual and humorous way. He attended the Belfast College of Art and now lives and works in London.

Typical of Kindness's work is the Treasures of New York series he produced when he spent time in New York in the early 1990s. Here, scenes inspired by contemporary life but modelled in style on Athenian ceramics are painted on panels from New York yellow cabs, equating the significance and stature of contemporary life with that of classical times. He is also known for his use of tiles in sculpture, often contrasting the domestic and static association of tiling with a dynamic and epic subject.

In 2014, he received an Individual Support Award from the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation.[1]
