Grahame Hurd-Wood

Grahame is inspired by the wildness of natural landscapes. Using both acrylics and watercolours, his use of vibrant colours to portray the world around him is indicative of his style.

Grahame Hurd-Wood studied at Camberwell School of Art for a B.A. Hons degree and went on to gain his M.A. at the Royal Academy of Arts, Piccadilly.

Since, leaving college he has exhibited all over the United Kingdom. He has exhibited in: the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition; South London Art Gallery; the Whitechapel Gallery; the Compton Fine Art, Windsor; the New Grafton Gallery, Barnes; Greyfriars Kirk House, Edinburgh; the Royal Cambrian Gallery, North Wales. He has also held solo shows at the Ifield Gallery, Chelsea; Courtyard Gallery, Selborne and in Oxford. In addition, Grahame produced a series of paintings for an exhibition mounted during the Brighton Festival, 1994. Prior to this, he was commissioned by the National Trust to depict the storm damage caused by the hurricane in 1987 which devastated the South East coast. This resulted in an exhibition at Petworth House, Sussex. One of the paintings was subsequently presented to H.R.H. Prince of Wales, the now H.R.H. King of The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Grahame's work is landscape based, inspired by both his immediate environment and, because of his extensive travels, encompasses images from Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal, Thailand and the Carribean.

Grahame has lived and worked in St Davids, Pembrokeshire for almost 4 decades. He exhibits locally in his gallery in St Davids, further afield in Wales, as well as mounting exhibitions further afield.
