John Robert Waters

John Waters is an Australian Visual Artist, based in Adelaide, South Australia.

John Waters has been represented by HILL SMITH GALLERY, Adelaide, South Australia, FRANCES KEEVIL GALLERY, Sydney, New South Wales and HARRISON GALLERIES, Sydney, New South Wales.

John Waters originally trained as an architect and practised in this field for fifteen years before studying and practicing art full-time since 2000. Such a background is clearly discernible in his work, which exhibits a sure sense of composition and practiced draughtsmanship, as well as the repeated use of architectural motifs. His paintings depict quiet, calm tableaux that are almost dreamlike in their imagery.
