When the Ikon Gallery first opened in 1965 (then located in a shop in the Bullring), local artist John Salt was the first to exhibit his work. Now a major retrospective of his work is on show at the Ikon until 17th July 2011. Abandoned and decaying cars set in the American landscape are John's most well known subjects. He uses an incredibly photorealistic style to create his paintings. Visit the gallery website for more information.
