William Belcher - Artist

Also known as Bill Belcher

Bill first started making spot paintings in the 1960's before other illustrious artist came to the technique. Here he uses a stump to over lay colours and produce the design. A fine work of art and highly decorative. Painter and creator of boxes and mixed media constructions. After war service he studied at Worthing school of Art and then the Royal College of Art, where he won a travelling Bursary. He married one of his fellow students Colleen Farr and together they established a studio where they produced works for fabrics, tapestries and many other aspects of the world of design in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Later in life he became known through his work on the Oldie magazine produced by his friend Richard Ingrams. He exhibited at the RA and the AIA with his mixed media works. A one man show of his boxes was held at England & Co. In 1991. Bill’s paintings show a deep understanding of form and construction with an underlying humour that makes his work stand out against the blandness of some modern art. RA Exhibits 1989. 1056 Collection with the Joker.
