John Murray is a South African artist and illustrator living and working in Cape Town. He was born in 1973 and obtained a BA Fine Arts degree from the University of Stellenbosch in 1996, where he also worked as a part-time lecturer in Screenprinting.

He’s had numerous exhibitions, the last one was at the WHATIFTHEWORLD gallery in Cape Town.  His work also appears in various private collections, including collections in Germany and England as well as at Spier Art Collection.

“More recently Murray’s work has leaned towards abstraction, not in its purest sense but rendered in a way that still hints at representational forms beneath the surface. These works, originally inspired by the different colours and hues that accumulated on the artists mixing pallets whist working; have evolved in to an ongoing series of paintings that allude structures that are simultaneously in the process of forming or perhaps disintegrating.”WHATIFTHEWORLD Gallery
