The Artist

Colin Self

English draughtsman, printmaker, sculptor and painter. He studied first at Norwich Art School, where he was much impressed by Michael Andrews, with whom he remained friends. In 1961 he entered the Slade School of Fine Arts in London, where he remained until 1963 despite the vilification that he received for his work from those around him; the visits and encouragement he received at this time from two older artists, David Hockney and Peter Blake, gave him the confidence to continue concentrating on the production of small drawings and collages of great intensity. One of his rare large paintings, Two Waiting Women and B-58 Nuclear Bomber (oil on board, 1.22×1.82 m, 1963; London, J. Moores priv. col., see 1997 exh. cat., p. 177), portrays two fashionably dressed young women silhouetted against a broad expanse of lightly clouded sky whose peacefulness is broken by the sudden intrusion of a nuclear bomber.
