Brian Fletcher

Brian Fletcher lives In Stourbridge. He is an elected member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, the Birmingham Art Circle, the Birmingham and Midland Pastel Society, Dudley Society of Artists and Vice President of the Easel Club.

He works in many media and draws inspiration from a wide range of subject matter. His great passions are for works in thick impasto oil paint, mixed media using watercolours and inks and for large scale drawings using graphite. The rugged industrial scenery of the Black Country inspires much of his work as well British mountain scenery.

He has exhibited widely, both locally and nationally and received a number of awards. Recently he has had work exhibited in London with the Royal Society of British Artists, was awarded the major prize in the 2009 RBSA Members and Associates exhibition and had two works selected for the 2010 Birmingham Open exhibition in the city Art Gallery. In November 2012 he has a one show at the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists gallery and in 2013 at the Red House Cone in Stourbridge.

He works as a peer support `buddy` in Action Heart.

His work is held in the permanent collections of Shropshire County Council, Dudley Art Gallery and the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists.

A statement by the painter Ivon Hitchens expresses his approach to his painting:

'I look at nature and write my own song about it'
