John Close has a Fine Art degree from Middlesex University. He subsequently developed his figurative practice through self directed study, attending local drawing classes and short courses for a number of years.

His artistic interest lies mainly in the human figure, and he has worked with performers from backgrounds in dance, theatre and mime. He has exhibited in the Jerwood Drawing Prize (2015) and participated in art events at the Zabludowicz Collection, Crypt Gallery and the London Contemporary Dance School.

He has taught life drawing classes extensively, for institutions such as the Mary Ward Centre, Cubitt Education, London Drawing and UAL. His work in education has led to tutoring special workshops at the National Gallery, Royal Academy and The Science Museum, and Widening Participation schemes at Goldsmith College and Central St Martins.
