Guy Gladwell

Guy Gladwell, deceased Seascape artist (Nairobi 1946 – 2014 UK)

Guy Gladwell was born in Nairobi.  Guy came to England with his family, settling in Jersey, Channel Islands. It was here that he began painting under the guidance of Sir Francis Barry and went on to study art at Bournemouth Art College. He later studied anatomy at Sir John Cass School of Art. Rapidly establishing himself as an excellent seascape artist, the ambitious young painter moved to London in 1969 where he joined the Nicholas Treadwell Gallery. In the 1970’s Gladwell formed a relationship with Arnot Gallery in New York who represented his seascape paintings. The series of calming sunrises or early dawn settings reflecting over the tranquil seascapes, as the gentle waves roll towards the coastline are represented in the Gladwell collection above. In 1980 he enjoyed a prolific period, earning commissions to paint portraits of Michael Caine and Paul Simon, demanding a private performance of Bridge Over Troubled Water from the songwriter in return. He exhibited extensively, with numerous appearances at the Royal Academy. Guy moved away from London to Nedging Tye, Suffolk, and then to Aldeburgh in 1991 where he lived and painted until he died in 2014. He was always taking inspiration from the county’s picturesque coastline and its eccentric characters to blend in with the local artistic fraternity, which earned him a solo exhibition at Snape Maltings.
