About John Bye "Winters Beauty" by John Bye

"Catch of the Day" by John Bye

Catch of the Day
by John Bye

“As a child I loved magic. Through it, you learn there are big differences between people observing something their brain has determined they will see, as opposed to what their eyes actually see. My art takes advantage that,” relates John Bye. “I paint photo-realistically because I am fascinated with technical aspects and the skills necessary to do it successfully. I see my paintings as High Definition windows on the world.

“I love painting birds of prey; they hunt, they eat. Everything about them is black and white. The precision and complexity necessary for an Osprey eagle to take a fish out of the water is something that takes your breath away. The beauty of that power and dexterity is what Catch of the Day captures.”

Captures in High Definition we might add! Beyond the sheer beauty of the art John creates, the sudden realization that you or your friends are looking at a painting and not a photograph is part of the fun of owning his art. See for yourself! The Greenwich Workshop is excited to introduce the contemporary wildlife art of this extraordinary English artist.

About John Bye

“It’s the satisfaction of pushing formless gobs of paint around until they coalesce into something that looks real that excites me about painting. I’ve tried, unsuccessfully, to paint with less detail but that is not who I am. Leaving something incomplete, whether that be the subject or its environment, pains me to the point of madness”

John was born on February 17, 1970 in Styvechale, Coventry. There have been artistic people throughout John’s family history and he has inherited his abilities. Self taught, John skills as an artist have grown with him. His aim is for each piece to capture the life and spirit of the subject he paints. His earlier works were in pencil and were mainly human subjects. John has experimented with various other mediums from oils, watercolors and pastels, eventually realizing that his favorite medium is acrylic.
