John L. Chapman (born 11 September 1946 in Blackburn, Lancashire, England) is a painter of urban landscapes, townscapes, transport, rural and maritime scenes amongst other subjects. For the last twenty years he has painted mainly in acrylics but is equally proficient with oils, watercolours and gouache.

Many of John's paintings have been reproduced as limited edition prints and he has also completed several commissions for Josiah Wedgwood and Sons. In 2003, a book John Chapman's Lancashire was published by Halsgrove (ISBN 1 84114 292 1)

John attended Bangor Street School in Blackburn, where his art teacher, Peter Shackleton, recognised his talent and arranged for him to take art classes at Blackburn College of Art on Saturday mornings. During his time at school, John developed an interest in trains and the railway art of Terence Cuneo and others. After leaving school in 1961, John was employed as a layout artist and later as a technical illustrator working on his own paintings in the evenings and at weekends.
