Greg Curnoe (1936–1992) transformed his hometown of London, Ontario, into an important city for artistic production by spearheading London Regionalism, a movement that focused on everyday life and turned away from the metropolitan art centres of the 60’s and 70’s. Curnoe changed artmaking in Canada with his anti-establishment and nationalist politics and by bringing regional artists into political discourse. His depictions often incorporate text to support his strong patriotism and support of Canadian artists.
