David Williams-Bulkeley

Williams-Bulkeley is British artist who now lives in Boston, New England and counts John Singer-Sargent and James McNeill Whistler among his strongest influences.  Like them, he has worked in several genres - as a painter of portraits, still life and landscapes.  His paintings exude a sense of luxury and are characterised by their visual harmony.  Williams-Bulkeley is, with the lightest of touches, able to describe the most beautiful objects and landscapes with an exquisite sensitivity.  Possessor of acute observational skills, Williams-Bulkeley sees beauty where others might not and transforms even the mundane into highly aesthiticised and beautiful objects, as can be seen in works such as Still Life with Plastic.

 

Like many of the greatest artists before him, Williams-Bulekely is self-taught. He established his reputation in London at the Royal Society of Portrait paintings, Royal Institute of Oil Painters and the NEAC. He has recently been made a member of the Guild of Boston Artists.
