John Furnival

John Furnival was born in London in 1933 and studied at Wimbledon School of Art and the Royal College of Art. He founded Openings Press in 1964 with Dom Sylvester Houédard, and together they staged many performances of concrete poetry. Furnival has exhibited internationally and his work is held in many public collections, including that of the Arts Council of Great Britain.

The exhibition John Furnival: somewhere between poetry and painting was held at England & Co (8 May-5 June 2010). These pages show an image archive of many of his text-related works, including many of those in the exhibition.
