Julian Le Bas

Born in 1958, Julian Le Bas is a Sussex artist whose robust charcoal drawings and oil paintings re-awaken a sense of our presence and emotional involvement in the natural world. The process of either drawing or painting from observation envelopes his work in the nuances of light rolling across the Sussex Downs and beyond.

He was tutored at University of Brighton by Dennis Creffield, who in turn was taught by David Bomberg. Le Bas continues the discipline of bringing weight and volume into light and space in what has become the English manner. His work is at once delicate yet full of movement and resolution.

Julian Le Bas is widely collected and has artworks held in public collections: Towner Gallery, Hove Museum and Art Gallery, South East Arts Collection. Exhibitions include Jerwood Prize Touring Exhibition. Julian, who lives in Brighton,is also a teacher of art, including at Morley College and Lewes Prison.

His solo exhibition Carpe Diem takes place 7 – 22 October 2017. View the brochure here
