John Boyd Dunlop
John Boyd-Dunlop’s art career was launched later in life, his paintings having
become an extension of life, family, and memories. Regardless of his late start as
a creative, John has made up for lost time. Employing a prolific practice, John has
grown a large catalogue of work and participated in many exhibitions in a matter of
just a few years.
Play is an essential ingredient to any artist’s practice, and this is certainly a
primary component in John’s work. In true outsider fashion, John’s oeuvre is free
of the burden of expectation, a true exploration of creativity as a self-taught artist.
His work attracts many for the honesty and humour, not just in subject but in the
experimentation of mediums, using traditional media in an unconventional manner.
