Retiring into a vibrant world of colour and inspiration

Since retiring as Deputy Principal from Green Bay High School a few years ago, emerging New Zealand artist, John Allpress, has reignited his passion for painting.

John's artistic style is an exploration of aesthetics, embodying existence in the moment and revealing an insight into art making - holding on, letting go, pushing through, stepping back, and allowing ideas to blossom. As seen in the image above, John's compositional ideas and approaches to applying, layering or uncovering paint is adaptive and emergent. Creating a masterpiece of colour, texture, vision and exploration.

We are very proud to promote John's next exhibiton showcasing a limited number of original, breathtaking artworks, from acclaimed and emerging New Zealand artists. Held at Allpress Studio, 8 Drake Street, Auckland, the Allpress Studio exposes an ever-changing landscape of inspirational eye candy, from leading and new emerging New Zealand artists.
