About the Book
“My Darwin 200 Year” is a 98 page full colour 10 x 8 inch book that celebrates the paintings, animals and places that John has visited during his Darwin 200 residency. The book accompanies the Darwin 200 exhibition at Falmouth Art Gallery.
"My Darwin 200 year has taken me around the world. I explored the high Andes in search of potatoes, combined my experiences of painting birds with the ballet in France and helped to inspire nearly 200 children to paint their own Darwin paintings. I have also had the most marvelous experiences on my days at the Zoo in Newquay with my easel covered in lemurs and my toes nibbled by meerkats !"
