Albert Edward Joseph Morgan (1933-2009) was a painter, born in Wolverhampton, West Midlands. Working as a commercial artist, he designed advertisement materials for the confectionery company, Cadbury. He also produced many advertisements for local papers and gained much success as a lapel badge designer. However Morgan’s passion for fine art remained a constant and he began to develop a unique style he named ‘roundism’. Morgan based his ethos around the idea that nature is entirely based around the circle and rounded shape, stating; ‘it is man that has invented the straight line’.
Morgan’s artwork is both optimistic and celebratory in style, this is evident in his attitude towards art making; ‘For many years I painted in a realistic manner before creating this style... [it] gives me great contentment of mind. Painting has become an adventure, and for me each picture has a great meaning'. Morgan exhibited his work at the Royal Academy, the Laing Art Gallery, and the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists.
