John Kindness is an Irish multimedia artist whose work often contrasts material, image and reference in an unusual and humorous way. He attended the Belfast College of Art and now lives and works in Dublin.

He is also known for his use of tiles in sculpture, often contrasting the domestic and static association of tiling with a dynamic and epic subject. John is probably most famous in Belfast for his Big Fish sculpture situated beside the Lagan Lookout, and is also known for The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly (at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children) and the Waterfall of Souvenirs (Europa bus station).

Northern Visions attended the exhibition and interviewed John about his work.
