Australian artist Johan van der Spuy is currently based in Singapore where he began painting as a second career in 2014. Predominantly, Johan depicts natural landscapes and outdoor street scenes using oil paints realistically. Particularly attuned to the shifts of color in nature, the artist is fascinated by how lighting shifts the mood and composition of a scene.

Johan also explores plays of light within populated street scenes, and landscapes at different times of day. He hopes to provide a viewer the ability to transport to a scene in nature through his paintings. The depiction of landscapes is also a method in which Johan conveys his appreciation of the beauty of different environments and the natural world. He consistently studies other artist’s techniques and seeks additional knowledge and expertise. His practice often relies on ebbs and flows of energy in the studio. Johan’s work has been awarded and exhibited internationally.
