brought up in the 1930's in the heavily industrialised southern
part of Lancashire with its extensive railway network, the
sights, sounds and smell of LMS and LNWR steam locomotives
have left a lasting impression on Brian Lancaster.
Brian has always drawn and painted - it ran in the family
- and at the age of 15 he successfully gained a scholarship
to Bolton College of Art, followed by a further three years
at Southport Art College, studying graphic design, illustration
etc. During this time he painted mainly in watercolours and exhibited
regularly at the Southport Annual Exhibitions.
It has always been the atmospheric qualities of railways
that have gripped Brian, and hopefully this is reflected
in his work. Other subjects of great interest are the industrial
scene, landscapes and architectural themes.
He exhibits widely, particularly in the London open exhibitions.
He is an associate member of the Royal Society of Marine
We regret to inform that Brian passed away 30/12/2005.
