Sir Terry Frost

Sir Terry Frost has become one of the most highly regarded British artists of this century.

He discovered his artistic talent during the four years he spent as a prisoner of war during the second world war. On his return to England he studied at the Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts, enjoying the flourishing scenes of London and St Ives. By the late 1950s he had become established as a leading abstract painter, exhibiting regularly in London and throughout the world.

Printmaking has played a key role in Sir Terry's work since his student days. Painting and print have become inseperable to him with one medium creating ideas for the other. In 1974 he moved to Newlyn in Cornwall, where his love of the region has inspired many of his silk screens which is the only medium capable of recreating the vivid colours so important to his work. Sir Terry Frost regretably passed away on the 1st September 2003.
