John Piper

John Piper’s inspiration for his work has always been the West Cornwall landscape pared down to its basic elements of looming skies, lichen-covered buildings and rugged moorland. Compositionally simple yet dramatic and beautiful, his work focuses strongly on colour and texture, which vary dramatically throughout his paintings, despite possessing characteristics which make them instantly recognisable.


John’s love for the area is evident in the way in which he creates, and he has quietly and unassumingly become one of Cornwall’s most prolific and well-loved artists.
