  • About

    James Cant studied at the East Sydney Technical College, Julian Ashton School and the Central School of Arts and Crafts (London). From 1949-55 he lived and worked in England and was a member of the London Group - his work at this time had surrealist qualities. Increasingly he turned towards social realism and was a founding member of SORA in Sydney. In 1949 he settled in Adelaide and taught at the South Australian School of Art. Cant made his first monotypes in the late 1940s and intermittently in subsequent years.
