Colin Birchall Gallery



Colin Birchall was born in West London in 1948 and studied graphic design at Twickenham College of Art.

He graduated in 1969 and worked as an art director and designer at a number of advertising agencies and design consultancies in London before moving to Cornwall in 1987 in order to devote more time to painting.

Initially he worked as a senior lecturer at Falmouth School of Art and Design and after a spell as a freelance designer and illustrator, began painting full time in 1992.

Although he has painted a wide variety of subjects, the Penwith landscape and rocky coastline have provided the main source of inspiration and his increasingly abstract work still has a strong sense of place.
