Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen fine art exhibition launch in Cirencester
Cotswold style king Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen is perhaps best known as an interior designer and television personality with his show Changing Rooms. But at heart, he is a classically-trained artist, having studied and gained degree in fine art at Camberwell School of Art.
Prompted by his wife Jackie, lockdown inspired LLB to look into different ways of expressing creativity, in his case it marked a hugely successful return to easel painting. For the first time in 15 years, he held a solo art exhibition at the Cotswold Contemporary gallery, in his home town of Cirencester, which opened with a busy private view evening packed with guests.
Despite considerable international interest, it was important to LLB that this exhibition happened in Cirencester, saying, 'I very much see myself as a part of the long tradition of artists and designers who have been proud to be Cotswold based. My life with my family is here, it’s where my business is based, and its power to inspire me creatively is something I marvel at every day.'
His exhibition, which ran from May to early June, was hugely successful, and his art will continue to be represented by the gallery on Market Place, Cirencester, both in the gallery and online.
