Event Details

An exhibition of original drawings, paintings and digital art by John Wright.

Having always loved Art and Design, and following a varied career since leaving school, in the late 80’s John took up an Illustration and Design course at Telford College.

Following his graduation he was offered a job at Edinburgh University as a photographic technician, before working in some of the most prestigious advertising and design agencies in Edinburgh. John worked on major promotions for many of the biggest companies in Britain. He was invited back to Telford College to lecture part time in illustration.

Late into the 90’s John was offered the post of Graphics Manager within the world renowned Institute of Petroleum Engineering at Heriot Watt University.

Here the primary focus was to oversee the development, design and publication of postgraduate teaching material for all the taught courses delivered by the Institute of Petroleum Engineering within Heriot Watt University.

However last year, he decided it was time for a change, again! He had lived in a digital world for so long. Constantly looking over the horizon to predict what the next big innovation would be and how he could exploit it had become tiresome.  John yearned to go back to the simpler times of 1976 when art was created with just a pencil and a sheet of paper.

So here we have a gallery combining John’s passion for all things automotive and his obsession for art.
