Artist Biography

In his early 20s Gordon King went freelance and became a Member of the Society of Industrial Artists (MSIAD), illustrating for major magazines and advertising agencies. Gradually he built up the commission side of his work by painting portraits and exhibiting his work until in the mid 70s he gave up illustration work altogether to enable him to concentrate full-time on his paintings which at that time were predominantly in oils. Success came quite rapidly, showing at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibitions in London and later at the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours, painting mostly figurative subjects.

His paintings of girls in natural surroundings soon became his trade mark and the popularity of the watercolours in the early 80s together with the success of his prints, limited editions and silk-screens brought him the high profile that he has today.

In 1995, his first book “A Romance with Art” was published, with a forward by HRH The Princess Royal, featuring a wide range of his oils and watercolours. A second edition followed later.
