Alan Kingsbury began painting in oils at the age of nine and, beguiled by art of the European masters, went on to study art history and subsequently worked in museum and auction room environments.
From 1986 he turned to painting full time, working initially in Italy, then Scotland and since 1991, West Cornwall.
For over twenty years his work was characterised by imaginative figure paintings but currently he engages directly with subject matter that he loves and concentrates on large scale still life, interior and landscape compositions in a fluid and painterly style.
Alan’s work is shown annually at the Royal West of England Academy where he is an elected Academician.
As well as commercial galleries, he has exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts, The New English Art Club and The Royal Society of Portrait Painters.
