John Peart was an Australian artist born in Brisbane, 1945. The style of Peart’s work is abstraction. He created lyrical abstract compositions that skillfully play with both positive and negative space. His experimentation with style and media created unique and spontaneous imagery that evokes the feeling of a landscape, creating what Peart described as, “an inner landscape for the mind's eye to roam”.
Peart’s work is represented at all State galleries as well as a number of other collections, both locally and internationally. He won the Wynne Prize in 1997, and the the Sulman Prize in 2000 - the same year of which he was a finalist for the Archibald Prize.
