12th June | 4.30pm. The Heatherley School of Fine Art.
James Lloyd graduated in the 90s from the Slade School of Fine Art with a Higher Diploma following a BA in Fine Art from Coventry and a Diploma from Blackpool College of Art and Design. He teaches at the Royal Drawing School and has won numerous awards including the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Award, Paul Smith Scholarship, Windsor & Newton Young Artists’ Award, Carrol Foundation Young Artist of the Year Award, First Prize in the BP Portrait Award, and the Ondaatje Prize for Portraiture. James Lloyd has undertaken commissions for many private clients and public institutions including Newcastle University, the Bank of England, Queen’s College, Lords Cricket Ground, the House of Lords, the Royal Collection and the National Portrait Gallery.
James is represented in the UK by Browse & Darby and in Germany by Hübner & Hübner.
He says ‘I’m going to talk about my career chronologically from my art education through to winning the BP Portrait Award and this leading on to me becoming a portrait painter. I’ll talk about how I go about making commissioned portraits but I’d also like to talk about my non commissioned work with a particular focus on my studio and how that features prominently in my work.’
This event is free and open to the public but seating is limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
