John Wilkins the brilliant artist may not have ever imagined his paintings would be valued so highly. Or even if he had an inkling of greater recognition later he may not have bothered, thanks to his eccentric involvement in his art. An involvement that effected his family and work life. Known to turn violent when disturbed or when his assistants do not produce the high standards he sets.
In his later years he left family and occupation as an Art director to pursue his art undisturbed.
Most of his paintings are held by private collectors, a few corporates and the British High Commission and the Singapore High Commission.
His painting titled Sneha- Village Belle currently commands a price of 22 Million USD
