1971 - ?

Colin Wilkin

Colin Keith Wilkin was born at Halstead, Essex in 1971, son of Barry Keith Wilkin and his wife Carol née James, who married at Halstead in 1970. Colin studied at University of Brighton 1992–1994 for his B.A. degree and then gained his M.A. at the Royal College of Art 1994–1996. Colin lives and works near Sudbury on the Suffolk/Essex border and gains his inspiration from the surrounding landscape and how it has been affected by man’s interventions past and present. His watercolour paintings are slightly geometric and offer an interesting view of the landscape that he finds so inspirational. Colin’s introduction to lithography with the Curwen Studio sell-out edition ‘Three Corner Wood’ has given him a different approach to creating an image, which he found refreshing. He has had several solo exhibitions in East Anglia, including at the Britten-Pears Library during the Aldeburgh Festival and at The Fry Art Gallery in Saffron Walden; Gainsborough's House Gallery, Sudbury and the Curwen & New Academy Gallery.
