In 2002, he left Blur following a bitter dispute with the other members, notably Damon Albarn. As a result, he played guitar and was credited as a songwriter on only the final track for the following year's Think Tank. In late 2008, Blur reformed with Coxon in the fold. As well as being a musician, Coxon is also a visual artist, designing the cover art for all his solo albums as well as Blur's 13.
Coxon plays several instruments, and is notable for recording his albums single-handedly, with little assistance from session musicians. Q magazine critic Adrian Deevoy once wrote: "Coxon is an astonishing musician. His restless playing style - all chord slides, rapid pulloffs, mini-arpeggios and fractured runs - seems to owe more to his saxophone training than any conventional guitar tuition." An innovative lead guitarist, he has been described by Oasis bandleader Noel Gallagher as "one of the most talented guitarists of his generation." Coxon was voted the 15th greatest guitarist of the last 30 years in a 2010 BBC poll.
