John Squire is a dedicated artist with a very interesting history. Originally, he received considerable acclaim as part of the rock band ‘The Stone Roses’. More recently, he has concentrated on developing his visual art career. His varied and unfailingly rich output of work has consisted mainly of paintings. His artwork first came to public notice with the very popular Pollockesque album cover designs for his band. Since then, his work has been paired down and has become generally abstract in form. A major retrospective exhibition of his work at the ICA in 2004 launched him onto the London art scene. Since then he has had a series of important solo shows in London (one at Signal), across the UK and globally. His work, which is very much influenced by his current creative passions, continues to develop and flourish with an energy most artists would envy.
