JOHN DYNON ART GALLERY
John Dynon Art Gallery
“Why not visit the Mayor, Sherriff and Town Drunk of Silverton, in his little shed across from his Head Office, the Silverton Pub!” – John Dynon
John Dynon Gallery is the place to find the brush strokes of one of Australia’s top selling artist’s and local resident John Dynon.
Born in Broken Hill in 1954, John always displayed a talent for capturing things on paper. He left school at 14 and worked on several sheep stations in NSW and Queensland. Four years later he headed underground to take up mining in Broken Hill. John said it was this incredible lifestyle that kindled his passion for the changing moods of the outback. In 1985 he became a full time artist to meet the demand that had grown for his paintings.
A canvas touched by John depicts the length and breadth of the Australian Outback, and the region’s ever-changing character – from the natural to the man-made, from the romance of the environment to bright abundant wildflowers in spring.
Meet this iconic outback larrikin in his working Studio. John is one of those very genuine, salt of the earth, outback characters who just makes your day. Call in and see his beautiful artwork, watch him work and have a chat. You won’t be disappointed!
