Featured Artist: Nicholas Chaundy
Nicholas Chaundy first studied art at Central St Martins where he received his Foundation Diploma in Fine Arts and then moved to Falmouth, Cornwall to study Fine Arts at Falmouth University. Having received no prior formal training, Nicholas used the three-year program to fully immerse himself in the world of fine art - reading, practicing and discovering the techniques of traditional painting and drawing that had been used for hundreds of years.
He then moved to Florence to study at the prestigious Florence Academy of Art. He went on to further his understanding of nineteenth century techniques in portraiture, figurative and still life work. Whilst studying at the Florence Academy, Nicholas received a scholarship and completed the three-year program in just over two years.
He now works in the UK as a commissioned portrait painter whilst developing his own portfolio of work. He is also a tutor at LARA (London Atelier of Representational Art) Bristol branch.
