John Duffin

Born: 1965

Painter and printmaker. Following his time training as a Draughtsman and Naval Architect at Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, Duffin studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths’ College in London. He then went on to earn an MA in Printmaking at Central St Martins. His work is focused on the depiction of modern urban environments at different times of day, taking inspiration from his inner-city surroundings to create dynamic, cinematic images of contemporary life. He is a member of The Royal Society of Painter Printmakers (RE) and has exhibited his prints at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition consistently for the last 20 years, along with numerous solo and group exhibitions. He has won many awards for his paintings and prints, notably the Blackfriars Bridge Network Southeast Commission in 2009 (where his painting of Blackfriars Bridge was reproduced and displayed on the bridge for one year) and the Most Outstanding Print Award chosen by Sir Peter Blake – Originals 10 London, in 2010.
