PROFILE: John Kiki

Image title

John Kiki trained at Camberwell School of Art and The Royal Academy of Arts, London. By the time he finished his studies in 1967, John had a unique approach to painting. During the last fifty years he has developed a rich figurative language that encompasses a fluid abstraction along side a changing caste of characters borrowed from Greek mythology, history genre paintings, and his own observations of how people interact in daily life. John Kiki's long career has included many significant solo and group exhibitions internationally, including at The Royal Academy, Hayward Gallery and Serpentine Gallery in London, as well as the OK Harris Gallery in Soho, New York. His paintings, drawings and prints have been included in several national collections.
