Born in Queensland in 1925, Coburn studied painting at East Sydney Technical College where he later taught. His painting may be described as tonal abstract expressionist. There is a strong religious theme throughout his work. He has been awarded various Australian art prizes, including the Blake Prize in 1960 and 1977 (as co-winner). His work is represented in several state galleries and in the Newcastle Gallery. John Coburn died in 2006. Edit or add to this biography
