Pitok, Sydney based artist, designer, creator, works in gouache a bright lurid medium of pure pigment. It’s fast drying and colours can easily be layered. It forces you move quickly and not labour too long with your art making. By day John stares at a computer screen and pushes pixels around. Painting is analogue and fuzzy, there is no undo button. He draws diverse inspiration from geek culture, abstract and pop Australiana as well as classic and contemporary Japanese art making.
