John Whitney website launched
One of South Australia’s most prolific mural artists, John Whitney now has a website. Many said this was a bridge too far. However, between us, we have proven them wrong and the website now showcases the multi dimensional body of work that John has produced over the last 4 decades.
John’s love of visual storytelling is evident across his work and last year I produced a video about a mural he created for Resthaven as part of a renovation of their Northern Community Services offices in Elizabeth. John has painted murals and artwork across South Australia and is also well known for his drawings and work on Womadelaide with all the amazing flags.
Much of his work was stored in his studio and he began to digitise this and then categorise it so we could create an opportunity for the viewer to explore his work in multiple genres across his career. There are so many angles to his work and now this is being shared with an audience that spans the globe.
Admittedly John is a Port Adelaide supporter and this caused some tension but we have come together to make his website and will be working together to add news and other new works as they come up along with exhibition information.
You can visit the website and check out his work here. The video about John’s work on the Resthaven Mural is below.
