John Harrison Portraits of the famous: Jimi Hendrix, Margaret Thatcher, Jessie Jay, Jim Morrison… by the artist Maite Rodriguez.
John Harrison’s work is all about the process. John likes to use what he can find, objects that people and companies throw away. For him it is all about the material, when John has an image in his mind he immediately starts to visualize the transition from 2D to 3D and explore the possibilities of bringing a flat surface to life creating 3D tonal drawings. John refers to his work as positive stencil art and has been likened to the style of LA Neo-pop art. All of the work is beautifully handmade and has an incredible unique finish.
John is currently exhibiting at the Architects Gallery in Teddington, London, Outside the square, Margate Kent, UK and will be showing his work at the brick lane gallery, London later this summer.

John Harrison uses layers of foam board, to create portraits of the famous. His portraits of the Beatles are fascinatingly abstract when viewed closely, and, again, the image emerges once you step away and is unmistakable Harrison is an emerging artist and his technique is relatively unique.
