John Lyons | Painter Poet

We have recently launched a brochure website for one of our most respected clients. (View in portfolio)

As a Trinidadian-born painter and poet, John has practised visual arts since 1959, following his studies at London’s Goldsmiths College, School of Art, and then at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Evidence of his creative involvement: six published poetry collections, an illustrated cookery book with foodie poems, several national poetry prizes, including the Peterloo Poetry Competition, inclusion in the Poetry Archive, creative writing tutoring, and readings in major festivals.

Taken together, John’s paintings and poetry combine his creative skills to make an influential contribution to the cultural and artistic paradigm in Britain today. His work mirrors life in our diverse society and may be found in children’s and adult’s poetry publications in prestigious A.C.E.

sponsored exhibitions, in the Arts Council Collection, the Victoria & Albert Word and Image Print Collection, and as a Windrush Arts Achiever in the No Colour Bar Exhibition at the City of London Guild Hall Gallery.
