Kit Johns joins Dart Gallery

Kit brings a fresh new twist to painting our wonderful coastline. A young artist based in Cornwall, he has established an enviable reputation for his unique work which now hangs in collections worldwide. He responded to our invitation to paint the South Devon coast as part of his first collection in Dartmouth. Employing a hugely creative approach, Kit utilises vintage maps as the foundation for works which stretch the envelope of landscape painting to capture the raw beauty and power of our coastal location. His unique approach results in paintings with very literal connections to place. Each work keenly evokes memories and experiences of the sea and the surrounding landscape. See his work below and in the gallery from late April.
