John Banting

John Banting (1902-1972) was a British artist associated with the Surrealist movement. He was born in London and studied at the Slade School of Fine Art and the Royal College of Art.

Banting’s early work was influenced by Cubism and Futurism, but he became interested in Surrealism in the 1930s. He was associated with the British Surrealist group and participated in several exhibitions with the group, including the landmark “International Surrealist Exhibition” in London in 1936.

Banting’s paintings and collages were characterized by their dreamlike quality, featuring strange and unexpected juxtapositions of objects and figures. He often incorporated found objects into his work, such as shells, feathers, and other natural materials.
