Born 1959 Buckinghamshire, England. Son of British painters Jeremy and Brenda King. Theatre BA at Dartington College Of Arts 1981. Figurative painter. Subjects are mostly portraits and nudes in dramatically lit settings. Strong emphasis on light and shadow or Film Noir lighting techniques to define the subjects. Favorite medium oil ...or watercolour for quick sketches. Favorite painters Andrew Wyeth, Norman Rockwell, Egon Schiele, Alphonse Mucha, Tamara De Lempicka, Guy Peelaert, lots of Neo Classical works ...and let's not forget Gil Elvgren! He now lives and paints in Zaltbommel in the Netherlands, and exhibits annualy in the two local art routes. Most of his work is commissioned.
