The Streets of Paris Jigsaw Puzzle
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Kevin Walsh was born in Castleford,in the heart of the industrial West Riding of Yorkshire, the same town which produced the world famous sculptor Henry Moore.
After studying illustration at the Wakefield College of Art, Kevin developed an early reputation, initially for his aircraft paintings.
In recent years, he has become increasingly known for a much wider variety of subject matter. Landscapes, city life and transport in bygone days all figure prominently among his works.
He travels many miles for research and spends countless hours sketching, before committing the final composition to canvas. Accurate technical and historical detail, combined with an ability to capture the warmth and atmosphere of times gone by are the hallmarks of this remarkably accomplished artist.
Kevin’s original oil painting are represented in many important collections worldwide.
