Greg Curnoe

Greg Curnoe (1936–1992) was a Canadian painter known for his concentration on subjects associated with regionalism and London, Ontario. He became known for work similar to the pop art genre, which continued to parallel his later work.

Curnoe was a founding member of the Nihilist Spasm Band. In London, Ontario he founded Region magazine in 1961, Region Gallery in 1962, and co-founded the Forest City Gallery, an artist-run centre in 1973. He co-founded CARFAC with Jack Chambers in 1968.

Curnoe was an avid cyclist, and bicycles were a frequent subject of his work. While on a club ride in 1992, a distracted driver of a pickup truck failed to see the group of riders and plowed into them. Curnoe was killed and several others were seriously injured.
