About

Born in Sydney, Australia in 1926, John Beeman studied at Julian Ashton's Art School in Sydney, London and in Europe. In both Julian Ashton and Slade College, John received the disciplined training in drawing and painting which had gained these schools a reputation for excellence in traditional teaching, as well as a firm grounding in traditional oil painting and a thorough understanding of the theory and history of traditional and contemporary fine art. Equipped with a thorough grounding in drawing painting and design and knowledge of methods and techniques of European painting, back to the 14th century, he returned to Australia. His subject matter varies widely although his focus over the years has been people, in and of their environment. He portrays his subjects with keen observation and at times a sharp and subtle wit. Johns subjects can perhaps be best described as ‘the art of every day life in Australia’ past and present. Restaurants, court rooms, funerals, weddings and rural life are just some of the diverse subjects that inspire Johns art and the characters he portrays are always represented with an elegant drama that provokes the viewer to think about the lives and thoughts of the subjects he portrays.
