Justin Knowles b.1935 is Devonian. In addition to several important international mixed exhibitions, his one-man exhibitions total twenty to include Bangkok (British Council) London, Milan and New York. He has received seven public awards and seven public commissions. His work is represented within fifteen public collections including the Tate Britain. In October 2002 he exhibited at the National Technical Museum in Prague in conjunction with the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic and in Cornwall at Lemon Street Gallery and in London with Austin/Desmond.

"The whole work is a masterpiece of aesthetic econonomy, an enormously subtle and complex experience being generated out of the minimal physical components."
Patrick Heron 1970

"The economy of Justin Knowles’ art should not mislead us into reading it casually or quickly. Its potency and wit, its precision and archetypal suggestiveness will ignite the imagination of the attentive viewer and make him glad that significant art is still created"
Keith Walker 2002, Canon Librarian, Winchester Cathedral

"At the present time there are few artists of a comparable imaginative scope, whose work has the power to create through its forms and rhythms, its structure and placement, the sense of mystery and of wonder that is now so rarely experienced in the presence of art in public places"
Mel Gooding 2002
