John Young art prints and posters

The stature of John Young’s aviation art is underlined by the number of prestigious international awards he had received. He has been honoured by many organisations: from the British Guild of Aviation Artists to the American Society of Aviation Artists.

Born in 1930, John Young has been painting the rich pageant of colour and atmosphere which surrounds planes for over forty years. He was fired with enthusiasm as a child by skies filled with the planes of the Second World War. He went to art school and from there into the RAF for National Service. As one might expect from a man who knows aircraft from the inside out and is therefore able to portray them with technical precision, John Young has flown in nearly 60 types of aircraft throughout the world!

John Young has painted professionally since 1950. His work combines a truthful representation of mechanical subjects with sensitivity to the many moods of the sky and land. But his greatest talent lies in his remarkable ability to tell a story through his work.

A widely acclaimed book has been published featuring his painting, which is enduringly popular on both sides of the Atlantic. John Young also worked on the set design for Stanley Kubrick’s film 2001, and his paintings can be found in the offices of governments, airlines, air forces and aircraft manufacturers across the globe.

Over the years John Young has established himself as one of the most collected and valued aviation and transport artists in the world and 45 of his paintings are held in the RAF Museum at Hendon in London.

More about framing

In the Design Studio

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.

Colour Perfecting in the Print Room

In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.

Measuring Up

After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.

Assembling Frames in the Framing Workshop

We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.

Hand-finishing in the Framing Workshop

Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.

The Last Stop

In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.

Mounting the Prints

The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.

Laying the Glass

Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.

The Final Product

After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.

Transferring to Canvas

For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.

Finishing the Canvas Edging

As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
