Brian Evans

Welsh born Brian lived in New Tredegar until moving to London when he was 12 years old. 

After an apprenticeship in the building trade, he did his National Service in the Army, and on demob took the Civil Service Entrance Examination and trained as a Wireless and Telegraph Officer, a career he followed until he took early retirement in 1985.   He returned to Wales and has lived in Gilwern for the past 25 years.

Although interested in art for a long time, he had never had the time or opportunity to take it seriously.   "So, as soon as I had settled in Gilwern, I joined Colin Sanger's evening classes and then went on to Ebbw Vale College."

He joined Abergavenny Art Group in the early 1990's and regularly attends Life Drawing classes and various other courses in the area, but says he is "still learning about Art"

He is a committee helper of the Abergavenny Art Group.



Brian has exhibited his work regularly at the Annual Exhibitions of the Art Group.
