THE BOY FROM FULHAM, His Art

Vincent Butler

Saturday 6th July 2019 – Friday 16th August 2019

Labrador, painting by Vincent Butler

Vince was born in Fulham, London where he grew up. He was educated at a school in Chelsea and was influenced by his art teacher, Miss Eddins. After leaving school he worked in a studio in Soho training to become a lettering artist.

Then someone invented Letraset and computers so that was the end of that career. He remained in the display business working as a graphic artist in the exhibition industry.

He managed to form his own company painting pub signs. This company is still in existence and is now run by one of his sons.
After many adventures he joined the RAF. After passing the rigours of the Central Flying School he was posted to Edinburgh to take command of no 12 air experience flight. This was in 1990. He only intended to stay in Scotland for three years but as it is so nice in the summer he decided to stay and has been in Scotland ever since.

After retiring from RAF he decided to devote his time to painting animals in Oils. He is happy to accept commissions.
He works from good quality photographs which must be clear and sharp.
