‘My Minds Eye’, a Surrealist Exhibition by John D Wilson

Feb 27 - Mar 26

Presented by: Katikati Open Air Art

In a world of digital trickery and special effects it takes a true artist to conjure an illusion with a trusty paintbrush and canvas. After more than 40 years as an artist John D Wilson has perfected his own take on the “reverse perspective” genre which bends the rules of physics to transform the viewer’s interpretation of objects near and far.

John D Wilson is a British born self-taught contemporary artist. His art is surreal, with most pieces viewed in 3D and containing a reverse perspective. John’s work has become highly sought after in England with many openings being sold out on the first day. John was a published artist for Washington Green who own Castle Galleries. They have many galleries throughout England. Other well-known people whose artworks they have assigned, are Bob Dylan, Ronnie Wood and Billy Connolly.  He has also exhibited in Harrods London, International Convention Centre Birmingham and private galleries in Belfast, Manchester and Glasgow.
John’s paintings are not just pictures to look at, they are a visual experience that you will want to talk about, you will wonder why you are looking at a painting that gives the impression of moving while you are doing what’s become known as ‘the Wilson sway’. This new selection of original 3D effect paintings is his most ambitious yet and showcases a magician’s eye for mind-boggling apparitions.

Don’t miss this stunning exhibition that will have your eyes doing tricks that your brain won’t believe!
