After graduating from Kent Institute of Art & Design at Canterbury in 1990, Bruce Williams spent almost twenty years as a mural artist and set painter within the film industry and BBC in London. Now based in North Kent, his paintings capture scenes around the Kent coastline where he often works directly in the landscape and on the seafront. His bold and confident style captures the essence of familiar landscapes and seascapes in simple shapes, colours and bold vigorous mark making, using oil paint, drawing and redrawing. In 2015 Bruce won the prestigious Royal Society of Marine Artists Oil Painting Award at the Mall Galleries in London.
