Jack Crabtree was born in 1938 in Rochdale in Lancashire, England. Between 1957 and 1959 he studied at Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design in London. Between 1959 and 1961 he undertook another course at the Royal Academy Schools in London. After leaving the Royal Academy Crabtree lived and worked in Rochdale and Salford for a number of years, then in Newport in South Wales where he lectured at the College of Art, before taking up an appointment at the University of Ulster in Belfast. He left after a while to settle in France. To date Crabtree has had over 70 solo exhibitions. Between 1974 and 1975 he was commissioned by the National Coal Board to produce a pictorial record of the changing face of the coalfields of South Wales.
