A solo exhibition by John Fisher
6 November 2015 - 9 January 2016
John Fisher is an artist who creates caricatures, a type of portrait where certain striking characteristics are exaggerated in order to create a comic or grotesque effect. Many of John’s works focus on famous people, film characters and musicians, often capturing a dramatic moment in time. His drawings, which are created using a drawing tablet and a computer, distort the face, emphasising the subject’s expressive features.
John has been drawing for six years, alongside running his joinery business in St Helens, and as well as creating works of well known people, also creates commissioned work. These works can be caricatures of pets, brides & grooms, families for Christmas cards or as part of advertising for businesses. He has previously shown his work at The World of Glass and Rennies art shop in St Helens and is a member of the International Society of Caricature Artists.
