Graham Sendall

Artist: Graham Sendall; Painting: Bonfires Graham Sendall


Acrylic on board
81 x 81 cm (32 x 32 in)


In the mid sixties Graham Sendall studied graphic design at West Sussex College of Art.

After leaving a career in advertising began painting stylised-realist scenes of his village and the surrounding area, a land of allotments, chapels, follies, country signs and red telephone boxes. Being almost always unpeopled it gives them a ‘something is about to happen' quality. They're peaceful, almost too peaceful. There is an idealism about his work, though none of it is premeditated.

He has been shortlisted three times for the Kaupthing/Singer & Friedlander/Sunday Times watercolour competition held annually at the Mall Galleries. In 2006 he was a prizewinner with “The Big Tree'.

Frank Whitford of The Sunday Times wrote
what struck the judges about this prizewinning picture was the nostalgia it sharply evokes. It looks like a view of part of an English village, so perfect it couldn't exist. ...the painting certainly makes the ordinary seem extraordinary
