John Douglas, Sydney Member Since September 2007 Artist Statement John Douglas is an Australian multi-media artist whose exhibitions have received acclaim and caused controversy both in his home country and internationally. He began painting at the age of 8, and studied at the Queensland College of Art until his expulsion in 1984 for being a “disruptive and disturbing influence”, after which his career really took off.
His photography encompasses a broad spectrum of styles and themes, including Australian newspapers, and magazines such as Black & White and Vacations & Travel; photography for publications in Thailand, Denmark, Sweden, United Arab Emirates, China and Japan.
His paintings were chosen for The Perfect Diary (Australia & New Zealand) for 2004 and 2005. John Douglas currently has a solo web exhibit for The Istanbul Museum of Contemporary Art.
