John Dunbar

John Dunbar (born Mexico City, 1943) is a British artist best known as co-founder of Indica, the avant-garde London gallery of the mid 1960s, and for his many friendships and connections within the art and music counter-culture scene. He has also consistently maintained an eclectic practice encompassing drawing and collage, sculpture and assemblage, photography and film. His solo exhibition features his notebooks - his constant companions of the past 50 years - displayed for the first time, alongside works and films produced over that same period.

A selection of works from the exhibition John Dunbar: Remember When Today Was Tomorrow are displayed here - more images will be added and a selection of works are available to view by appointment.
