John Burns has a studio gallery in the Southern Alps, in a small settlement called Ōtira. From here he lives and works, painting whatever he likes in the styles that he can imagine. John does not have concern for others expectation of him, he has no masters over him in terms of what to paint. This gives him total freedom to paint what he likes, how he likes. John is a prolific artist and has sold many works throughout New Zealand and over seas including to buyers such as SpaceX in Washington DC. All of John’s work is different—including from each other—and that is how it is.
