Mexico’s most-loved Artist, the Mexican Heroine, is explored as a heroine for disabled people, for feminists, for people who have suffered loss, who struggle with mental health, who cannot have a child… Butterfly Cry Artist’s empathy for his Mexican Heroine came about suddenly, when he read of her tram accident at age 18, and realised she sustained so many fractures and broken bones. This was a visceral realisation due to the artist’s own experience. And the inspiration of the Mexican Heroine is the assertion that creative action has the power to change suffering into something beautiful.

Butterfly Cry Artist, Scottish artist John McDonald, is unashamed of the passion and pathos of his work. He paints, mainly portraits, with a theatrical departure from reality. The artist often sets a staged scene and creates a ‘dramatis personae’ in collaboration with his subject. Despite colour-blindness, John is a real colourist, and plays with meaning through colour bursting through, or bleeding out, of ‘monochrome’ works.

John’s practice is primarily in large-scale painting, but he is also becoming known for his alternative curation. The artist’s background in theatre is evident in ambitious installation; he creates a fully immersive experience in how he exhibits his works.

The artist is now happy to be able to offer very affordable fine art prints of nineteen of his most popular paintings. For those who cannot purchase an original painting or hand-finished print, these A4 fine art prints are a wonderful way of collecting the work of the Butterfly Cry Artist. These prints can be mounted and framed at home, and make a nice gift.

Butterfly Cry Artist hopes that this will make his artwork accessible to many more people, and will continue to spread his story and his message. John’s work is in a socially critical tradition, and asserts that creativity has power to change both the artist and the world.
