Justin Coburn Artist Bio
Justin Coburn was born in the North East and studied Fine Art in the late 1980s, subsequently going onto work in commercial design. He now works full time as an artist.
He is particularly interested in the representation of animals in art and the many ways in which this is seen throughout art history be symbolic, religious, ethical etc and how this allows us to think about our own complex and often contradictory relationship with nature.
Justin Coburn won the Runner-up prize at the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year 2018.
