About

Based in Lancaster, in North West England, I produced posters for a wide variety of arts events around the UK from 1975 to 2003.  I screen-printed many of these posters, and a selection can be seen at johnangusposters.com.

I occasionally also created prints, some of which are shown on this site. The distinction between prints and posters is not sharp :  in general, posters were commissioned and prints were not;  but a few prints were commissioned; and some prints were derived from poster designs.

I did no screen-printing from 1999 until 2013,  when I was awarded an Artists’ Access to Art College (AA2A) placement in the print department at the University of Central Lancashire, and I started printmaking again.  I have been fortunate to continue using the print facilities at UCLan ever since : Artlab Contemporary Print Studios.

This site displays some of both the earlier prints and those produced recently.
