FAMOUS MATCHBOX TILES

As a single work of art or combined with many to create a breathtaking mosaic, the Matchbox Tiles offer unique versatility which makes them John's most popular mode of expression to date.

TILES

MATCH-

BOX

I started making the matchbox tiles ‘round about 2008, 2009. The economy had slowed down and I was frustrated. I wanted to express myself. I wanted to say so much and I thought, “working smaller”, was the answer. I am so thankful for those hard times because it changed the way I work – it changed the way I view my work. They allow me the opportunity to tile buildings and to do large-scale projects.
