Alastair Adams – Artists Talk


Monday 3rd December



Portrait Painting: Personal Development, Relationships and Empowerment

In this talk Alastair will discuss some key turning points in his career to date. Focussing on specific commissioned and non commissioned paintings, Alastair will discuss how his practice, and representational drawings and paintings as a whole, can be used to represent and empower their subjects.

As well as managing his own studio and working to commission, Alastair has held several artistic and educational roles across his career. Most notably he was President of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters between 2008 and 2014 whilst also holding a research based lecturer and programme coordinator at Loughborough University. In 2013 he was commissioned by the NPG to paint Tony Blair and currently his portrait of writer and director Bruce Robinson is being ecxhibited in the 2018 BP Portrait Award.

This event is free and open to the public but seating is limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
