John Chambers (British, 1934-2015)

John Chambers studied at Redruth School of Art and at the Slade (1954-57). He returned to Cornwall where he taught art in Fowey for almost a decade. In 1967 he became Head of Art at Queen Mary's Boys School, Basingstoke. From there in 1970 he joined the teaching staff of the South Devon College of Art and worked in both Newton Abbot and subsequently in Torquay when the school re-located. He retired as Head of the School of Art and Design there in 1995 and returned to Penwith, where he now lives and paints.

John is also a writer on art-related topics, including a study of the Newlyn artist Frank Bramley.

In Cornwall he exhibited in Penzance, St Ives and in Newlyn and engages with series or groups of paintings employing mixed media and experimental abstract and geometric forms and images to a chosen theme, often with Cornish language titles.
