John Radford was born in Palmerston North and is a self-taught artist who works in paint, sculpture and installation/multimedia. His art often comments on change, or imagined change, within his environment.
A noted aesthetic concept Radford has developed is 'transplasticism' where objects are made to appear to change their materiality, for example a car coated in clay.
Since 2009 Radford has been running a indefinitely long project called 'Graft' that comments on the process of "mass suburban demolitions, removals and re-locations caused by urban redevelopment" in a suburb of Victorian Villas.
