Brendan Skelton Artist Bio:
Born in Yorkshire in 1947. At the age of 3 my family and I moved to Singapore. Loved the place. Later we moved to Hong Kong where we lived for three years. Again I loved the freedom of the outdoor life and the adventures there for the taking. Later still we moved to Germany. At the age of 'Rock n' Roll' the Berlin wall and the consumer society life continued to be an exciting 'playground.' My background includes experience of furniture making, engineering and technology. For a while building timber houses in Denmark interested me. Later I went to university and became a teacher of technology, art and art history teaching at Clifton College Bristol, Shebbear College Devon and the Royal School Bath. Co founder of the St Pauls Carnival Bristol and the Sofa Project. Recently I spent two wonderful years working with Colin Howe in my studio in Portugal, the end product of which is a body of work consisting of 60 pieces linked through interacting with, and being closely involved with the local Urban environment and culture.
