About Yianni Johns

Born in Australia in the late fifties. A Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) from Curtin University Western Australia and a keen eye for my surroundings has ensured I have become one of Australia's greatest living contemporary artists, even if I say so myself. I love to paint, to tell a story and be culturally significant. My art lets you in but you have to connect to understand fully what is going on there. Overall though you will bring your own ideas to my art and that is okay with me. Enjoy this page and my art within. Yianni
