John Duffin

John Duffin is one of the leading printmakers in Britain. His prints and paintings of urban environments capture the dynamism and energy of modern city life, chronicling the narratives of contemporary living. He has won many prizes for his printmaking and painting and his work is in many public and private collections in the UK and abroad.

He works mainly in the medium of etching and spends long hours drawing on the copper plates to create light and shade, working from small pencil drawings he has made whilst out walking in the city streets. He works with line and cross hatching only and prints with the blackest ink on the whitest paper he can find. He likes the directness of drawing on a plate; it distills his visions of the urban world and allows him to create very direct images with great subtlety and mood. Etching for him is a long and methodical process, purifying his imaginative impressions of the world onto plate and paper.

He draws on the spot in sketchbooks and on small pieces of paper and takes these back to the studio where he develops them into powerful images that are a fusion of what he has observed and felt combined with his imagination, creating paintings and prints that are his powerful personal vision of modern city life.
