John Kimpton's book 'Art of the Community'

Art Of The Community
An exciting New Book by John Kimpton.

After several months of hard work, John's book 'Art of the Community' finally hits the book shelves. Containing over 100 studies of Tameside people, the book represents great value for money and a good opportunity to see a great number of John's sketches and studies in one place.

The book is a collection of sketches of moments in the every day lives of ordinary people going about their business on the street.

"In the book, I have tried to capture the intimate moments in which I feel generally go unnoticed. The titles are colloquial phrases used by people everyday. For each of the characters in the book, I know a little background history to what they were doing at the time, but I have left the situations open, as I feel that everybody looks at other people with a different perspective and half the interest of the book is what the individual gets out of each character."


Through his art John expresses with clarity and certainty the epic of daily life, and its permanence, dignity and value are captured there for all to see. We only have to take the time out from our busy lives to look
