Our artist has had an exciting time. In May 2016, Johnny Morant embarked on a journey to explore the Mediterranean by sailing boat, together with his partner Julia. As total
newcomers to sailing, the pair had no idea what to expect. Only one thing was clear to our artist, right from the start. If you want to achieve something, you have to take a chance.
Johnny took his camera, sketchpad and easel along for the five-month journey. The artist, who lives in London, turned the impressions and experiences gained on this voyage into
an exceptional series of oil paintings – each as unique as nature itself. His new collection has only recently been on display to admire, at London’s Rountree Tryon Gallery, and now
Johnny can also share his work with the world through our online shop.
Johnny wasn’t always as determined as he is now. After attending art school in Bristol and Bournemouth, he initially hesitated to make a career from his passion. That’s why he ended
up in Central Russia for a while. Here he taught keen fishermen how to fly fish, while simultaneously completing sketches of his clients. Once back in London, he awoke the interest of
gallery owners with his completed work.
Figurative drawings and paintings became his life and his greatest passion, and this continues today. His contemporary images are charged with emotions and allow him to relive
his most beautiful memories, while simultaneously sharing them with art enthusiasts from all over the world.
