John Damari

John Damari’s early influences began in childhood with encouragement from his father and wider family members who were all interested and involved in art in its many forms, both in Scotland and in his native Italy. His father, in particular, was an accomplished artist and instilled the love of art in John from the age of seven. John takes his influences from his love of nature and the outdoors – the ruggedness and majesty of the mountains and the calmness of the sea along the coastline of Western Scotland and its islands. The strength of character of the local people in the remote settings also encourages his passion for areas of mid-Argyll, the Hebridean islands and Northumberland. His love of Italy is inspired by the warmth of the landscapes and charismatic nature of the people and in particular his attraction to the Tuscan region with its rolling poppy fields which he has observed first hand and from photographs taken whilst travelling there. The ancient eternal city of Rome also inspires John from its beauty and architecture to its sense of belonging within the history of the world. John’s trademark use of the palette knife, combined with vibrant colours, captures the feeling and atmosphere of his subject matter and inspires reaction in his viewers. John is involved in many charities ranging from The Red Cross to The Malawi Appeal. His many generous donations have helped the lives of the young and vulnerable both here and abroad. In order to encourage the arts in young people, John has made many donations to schools, children’s wards in hospitals, also Universities and churches in the United Kingdom and many other charities both in the UK and Europe.
