Born in 1947, Gerald Green gained a Diploma in Architecture at Leicester Polytechnic. In 1987 he gave up this career to become a full-time Artist and Illustrator and rapidly gained a reputation as one of the UK's leading Architectural Illustrators, numbering several major national and international companies among his many clients. At this time he also served as Vice President of The Society of Architectural Illustrators and as a Director of The Free Painters and Sculptors Group in London.
Now devoting himself entirely to painting his work has been shown in numerous public and private galleries in the UK together with various Society Shows at the Mall Galleries, London. He has been a finalist in several national arts competitions including The Singer and Friedlander/ Sunday Times Watercolour Competition, The Laing and Not The Turner Prize exhibitions. His considerable ability with both oil and watercolour exploits the spontaneity of the medium in order to catch the essence of his subjects, using light as the catalyst.
For many years Gerald has been a regular contributor to arts magazines, including The Artist and International Artist. His new book The Artists Essential Guide to Watercolour is his first solo publication.
