FINE ART Ken Maycock
Recently retried Fine Art teacher Ken Maycock now lives full time in Pembrokeshire after having a second home here for some 10 years.
After studying at the Slade School of Fine Art for 6 years his only teaching post was at Dulwich College London for 29 years, with a break of one year to take up his Boise Travelling Scholarship.
Throughout this period of his life he continued to exhibit and has done so ever since 1983 when he was selected for the Christie’s Fine Art “The Pick of Undergraduate Art” exhibition.
Most of his shows have been in prestigious London Galleries such as The Cadogan Contemporary, Dulwich Picture Gallery, Leighton House, London, etc.
We were delighted to welcome him to the Waterfront for the first time in the “New Blood” Selection in 2015.
“I try to paint from direct observation and rarely make preparatory drawings; all of the drawing goes into the paintings.”
