BIO: Des Welsh


Des Welsh was born in Belfast in 1955 and works from his home in Bangor, County Down in Northern Ireland. After completing an engineering apprenticeship in 1976, his working life was spent as a Technical Illustrator and Technical Author in Shorts Aerospace Factory in Belfast. He is completely self taught and has drawn and painted from an early age. Working in both pencil and acrylic, his bold use of colour on canvas has a striking impact which focuses the viewers eye on the subject. He has exhibited in local galleries, and recently in The Mall Galleries in London for the Guild of Aviation Artists exhibition in July 2016.
