New prints by Trevor Price

The artist Trevor Price lives specialises in drypoints and etchings that are handmade and hand printed in his studios in London and St. Ives.

He studied at Falmouth and Winchester Schools of Art and is a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. Trevor exhibits widely throughout Europe, with regular solo shows of both paintings and original prints. In 2011 at Printfest, which is Britian’s only art fair dedicated to printmaking, he was the invited ‘Printmaker of the Year’. His work is held in various collections including the Ashmolean Museum (Oxford), Guangdong Museum of Art (China), Yale University (USA), The Office of Public Works (Dublin), and The Bank of England.

He has won several national printmaking awards, and on a number of occasions been an invited selector for the annual National Printmaking Exhibition held at the Mall Galleries in London. The artworks by Trevor usually represent the intimacy between a couple, sometimes romantic, sometimes erotic and often humorous. Artistic influences include Pablo Picasso, Freda Kahlo, Ben Nicholson and Cecil Collins. Location can also be a big influence in the work, and his Cornish roots often feature.
