Biography

Brian Denington was born in 1944 in Glastonbury, Somerset. He studied fine art and illustration at the South East Essex School of Art from 1961 to 1966. After leaving college he worked for some time as a graphic designer in a London design studio before turning his interests towards figurative illustration and portraiture. Since moving to France he has placed less emphasis on portraiture, and concentrated almost entirely on his figure work. There is now a considerable demand for his nudes and figure studies, and he regularly shows and sells his work in London, Belfast, Dublin & Paris.


Artist Statement

The advent of the Apple computer changed everything, and for Brian and many professional artists at that time illustration as an art form almost ceased to exist and afterwards Brian concentrated on paintings for exhibition and commissioned portraits.    He exhibited at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, his commissions were many and varied, such as family & corporate portraits, and Elvis Presley & George Melly for CD albums to oil & water colour portraits of Sir John Barbirolli for his widow Lady Evelyn Barbirolli and to hang in Trinity College London.  Before moving to France in 2004 whilst living in Ireland he was invited artist at the Carlow Eigse and the Royal Hibernian Academy, commissioned to produce a large painting for the Dáil in Dublin containing a number of portraits of Irish politicians and heroes of the Republic and later engaged as resident artist during the Irish general election campaign in 2002.
