27 October – 6 November 2009
Phil Pyros was a well known figure in the art world in Liverpool in the seventies prior to his emigration to Australia where he has pursued a succesful art career. We welcome him back with a collection of his superb portraits and charcoal drawings.
Phil Pyros’s favourite medium is charcoal which he uses to great effect through the diverse techniques he has at his disposal proving that this medium can be impressive and engaging.
On top of this Phil is also skilled with Oil and pastel excelling at portraiture. In the words of the late Adrian Henri – “His paintings are the realistic transcriptions of the visible world, close toned with delicate colour harmonies. He paints shrewdly observed portrait of friends including members of the art world.”
