Ambiguous and ephemeral animal studies

Born in the North East of England, Justin Coburn is widely known for his emotive and romantic representations of animals. The push-pull style of painting he is famous for, allows the viewer to question man's relationship to nature, the familial friendships we form with animals as well as the symbolic and religious roles they play. In 2018 he was a runner up in the Wildlife Artist of the Year competition and received the Lyon and Turnbull Award for Painting at the 2018 Royal Scottish Academy Open.
