Andrew King (b.1956)

Parliamentary Art Collection
Watercolourist and painter in oil on gesso, born in Bedford. He graduated in 1978 in fine art, painting, at Hornsey College of Art, painting full-time from then. He was made a member of NS in 1984, an associate of ROI in 1987. King had an interest in atmosphere, light and mood in landscape, the twentieth-century East Anglian landscapists being an influence. He worked “in true watercolour, on handmade paper in the traditional manner.” Exhibited RWS, RI, NEAC and elsewhere in mixed shows. Had a first solo show at Luton County Council Library in 1978; from 1982 showed annually at Thompson’s Gallery, Aldeburgh; with one at A & K Wilson Gallery, Harpenden, 2001. Local authority collections hold examples. Lived in Colby, Norwich.
