Today we feature British Artist Ken Howard

Ken Howard is a Royal Academy artist with a worldwide reputation. He was born in 1932 and studied art at Hornsey School of Art from 1949 to 1953 and then later at the Royal College of Art from 1955 to 1958. Howard then went on to win a British Council Art Scholarship to Florence from 1958 to 1959

In 1979 Ken Howard was appointed by the Imperial War Museum as official British artist in Northern Ireland. He also worked with the British Army in Germany, Cyprus, Oman, Hong Kong, Nepal, Norway, Canada, Belize and Brunei from 1973 to 1982.

Ken Howard is a master at capturing light in both oil and watercolour paintings. Today he is known as one of the leading British Artists for his ability to fuse light and atmosphere in his contemporary paintings. The subjects for Ken’s contemporary paintings range from studio nudes to Venetian scenes and Cornish beaches.

Ken Howard’s numerous art awards include: First Prize in the Lord Mayor’s Art Award in 1966; a Prize Winner in the John Moores Art Exhibition, Liverpool in 1978; first prize in the Hunting Group Art Awards; and the Critics Prize at Sparkasse Karlsruhe in 1985. He now lives and works in London or in his Venetian and Cornish studios.
