About John Arthur

The ruling passions in John Arthur's life are painting and travel.

His family have lived in Dorking for generations but he spent six years travelling and working in Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Asia.  He found his distinctive painting style during those years, and  on his return to England developed it further, citing Turner as one of major  influences .

In 1995 he established The John Arthur Gallery in the Old Kings Head Court with his business partner Sung-hee LEE  just off the Dorking High Street where he exhibits his own work alongside  pieces by other selected artists.
