Artist Biography

Alfred Nixon Moores (1914-2000) was an English artist, designer and photographer. At 17, he gained a 5-year apprenticeship in the studio of Mardon Son and Hall, where he became a general designer, concerned mainly with advertising and packaging. On joining the RAF at the outbreak of World War II he was posted to the Marine Aircraft Establishment at Helensburgh, conducting research with flying boats. Here he was required to turn draughtsman's plans into pictorial views. Working at other locations Moores carried out similar projects for the Second Front and in between times he decorated many an airmen's mess with dramatic panels of aircraft in action. Four of these were exhibited in the National Gallery in 1944.

Near the end of the war, Alfred moved to Rangoon in Burma, and his sketches of pagodas, street scenes, riverside life in sampans and so on eventually gained his admittance to Bristol Savages after his introduction by his great friend and fellow artist Harold Packer in 1946. Alfred was President in 1960 and again in 1970. He gave lectures to the Bristol Royal Photographic Society on making abstracts using normal photographic techniques. His works have been exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy, National Portrait Gallery, Arts Council of Great Britain Touring Exhibitions, Royal West of England Academy, Bristol City Art Gallery.
