Guy Denning

Guy Denning  was born in Bristol  1965.  He became famous during in the past five years, he has painted consistently for over thirty years. During the  mid-nineties he considered his abstract painting  to be 'painting a dead aesthetic into a dead-end' and he looked around for fresher ideas.
At that time he was supporting himself with a job in a stationery shop; it was here that he returned to the photocopier as a tool to work with. He left abstract in favour of  figurative art. 
 In 2007 he left his native Bristol for Brittany where he now lives and works.
 My art class recreated some of Guy Dennings  images with charcoal.
