Will St. John spent years studying Renaissance painting techniques in Florence and around Europe. He brings these skills to his community of Bohemian New Yorkers. With a rigorous artistic style and approach to image-making, St. John’s meticulously crafted paintings exude delicately fierce character. Reminding us of the French Rococo tradition, his works echo the genre’s hallmark traits: a whimsical treatment of sensual themes, deployment of rich and intricate brushwork, and an infusion of pastel hues.
Presented by Saatchi Yates Gallery, this show is running until October 22, 2023.
