This weeks guest is the amazing artist John Bokor, who kindly spoke to us over zoom from his studio in Bulli.

He is represented by King Street Gallery in Sydney,  Nicolas Thompson gallery in Melbourne and Edwina Corlette in Brisbane. John graduated from the National Art School in 1993, with a diploma in Painting, and once again in 2000 with a Bachelor of Fine Art.

In 2012, Bokor won the NSW Parliament Plein Air Painting Prize and had four large drawings purchased by the Art Gallery New South Wales. In 2013, he won both the Wilson Art Award and the Eutick Memorial Still Life Award, and in 2016 he won the drawing section of the Muswellbrook Art Prize and the Kings School Art Prize.

We spoke to John about his techniques, time at art school, teaching, his use of colour, entering art prizes and much more. 

Thanks, John, it was a real pleasure to talk to you, we learned so much.
