The Ironmonger's Assistant

in Oil by James Henry Johnston No Artist Reviews
10 monthly payments of £50.00 0% APR
This is one of a series of portrait paintings I painted recently which use local Swansea people as my models. The people are everyday people who work in shops, the post office, cafes or people I meet on the street and simply want to paint as I like their faces. I love the idea of painting common people as much portraiture traditionally is associated with the famous, rich or with status. I liked to debunk that idea and make the ordinary, extraordinary. This is Astra, who has to be one of the most glamorous Ironmonger’s assistant’s one could hope to meet, works in the Ironmongers that is most conveniently located five minutes from my home in Brynmill, Swansea.

About the Artist

I am an Irish, Swansea-based painter and photographer who has recently been featured on BBC News. I try to paint the essence of people and photograph the presence of places. I love oil paint, the viscosity of it, the sensual feel of it and how one can almost "sculpt" paintings with this me...
