Born in Lowestoft, Suffolk, John Button grew up on England’s east coast. He studied Architecture in Brighton and worked for many years with exhibition design, interiors and illustration. After moving to Sweden with his young family, John began painting and exhibiting more actively.
In his paintings, he explores landscape and seascape through its patterns and textures, attempting to trigger a memory or a sense of place and ignoring conventional rules of perspective along the way. In his still-life studies, John tries to tease something extraordinary out of his everyday surroundings.
