John is one of the UK's most celebrated contemporary painters and his work has been widely published all over the world. His paintings exploring the world's most important crops have firmly placed his work at the forefront of contempory art and this has been recognised with many global painting residencies with United Nations supported NGOs and a fifteen year art residency at the Eden Project UK. John Dyer lives and works on the south coast of Cornwall in Falmouth with his wife and children and their sausage dog Digory. John shares with us his latest stories and experiences of being an artist.
