John Atkin’s research is based on the Found Object tradition in Modern and Contemporary Fine Art practice. He uses drawing and sculpture to explore ways that objects have a relationship to specific cultures and histories, as well as how these everyday objects have analogies to the human figure: and how these connections can be expressed in studio based practice as well as the public realm.

 

His large-scale artworks are often commissioned as part of public realm regeneration projects because the imagery he uses has a resonance to specific locales, creating a sense of place and redefining run down areas of towns and cities as destination places.

 

His work is also exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide. John Atkin is also the recipient of numerous awards and prizes from the public and private sector.
