David John was born in Liverpool and trained as an artist at the Liverpool College of Art.

David now works from his home studio and gallery in Arrowtown with partner Lyndal and daughter Fineen.

His reputation became firmly established in New Zealand, not only as an award winning portrait artist and writer but also as a playwright and actor. He has written and directed three plays and a musical for community theatre and has gained stage experience with drama groups and theatre-sport.

Arrowtown is a rich source of inspiration for David John’s art, having provided material to illustrate four books about the gold mining town’s history as well as inspiration for his paintings, poetry and the stage musical ‘RUSH!’. Over 40,000 people have now seen this smash hit show in New Zealand and UK theatres.
