Biography
John Short was born in Fife, Scotland. He graduated from Edinburgh College of Art and The Royal College of Art, London. In London he worked freelance for publishers, contributed to exhibitions and undertook private commissions worldwide. He moved to Dublin in 1980 and was appointed Senior Lecturer in Illustration and Drawing in the School of Art & Design DIT. He continued to practice with publishers and private watercolour portrait commissions but since 2005 he has focused on producing and exhibiting location based artworks. His work is based on field trips to Scotland, North Africa, China, Australia and Ireland, particularly his local area on the South County Dublin coast. His work takes many formats including sketchbook drawings, large scale watercolour, ink and photo transfer images, digital prints and 3D paper sculptures. John works and lives with his wife and family in Dalkey, County Dublin, Ireland. “Giving the impression of spontaneity is important in my work. Being casual and relaxed certainly helps through much practice and draughtsmanship. Often the quickest seemingly throwaway and most immediate use of materials can often capture more than a few too many strokes. Make it look effortless, controlled and well observed.” - John Short
