About John Thiering

John Thiering has been an exhibiting artist since his first show in Sydney in 1987. Painting is his primary medium but he has also exhibited drawings, cartoons and sculpture. From 1996 to 2003 he performed live cartooning using an overhead projector and he has also illustrated books and made a number of short films. John has been an art teacher since 1992.

John’s sand-painting performance consists of a series of images drawn in sand that merge from one to another to tell a story. The specific personal journey of each couple is transformed into a unique and breath-taking visual experience. It is performed live at the wedding, projected onto a screen and accompanied by music. Each show is approximately 15 minutes. John has been doing sand-painting since 2010, including weddings, festivals and corporate events.
