The Alan Kingsbury Collection

Apr 4th 2024

Soicher Marin is thrilled to announce that we are featuring the work of the renowned artist Alan Kingsbury. Born in London in 1960, Alan Kingsbury began painting in oils at the young age of nine. He studied art history at the University of Wales and New Academy for Art Studies specializing in old master and modern European painting. Subsequently, he worked in museum and auction room environments. From 1986, he turned to painting full time, working initially in Italy, then Scotland, and since 1991, West Cornwall. Alan Kingsbury is an elected Academician of the Royal West of England Academy and today concentrates on large-scale still life, interior, and landscape compositions in a fluid and painterly style.

Alan Kingsbury's exceptional ability to create imaginative figure paintings has garnered much attention in the industry. At first glance, his paintings may seem compositionally simple, but upon closer inspection, they are, in fact, incredibly intricate and the discerning viewer might discover the underlying enigmatic narrative. Kingsbury is a perfectionist, and his attention to detail is evident in his brushstrokes, use of lighting, and color choices throughout his work. From fleeting moments on the streets of London to voyeuristic encounters from within a subject’s dining room, each piece of art reflects Kingsbury's perspective of the world. He seemingly takes ordinary moments and brings them to life through the grace and power of his composition. Every painting is a personal work of art that is sure to captivate any curious viewer. In today's fast-paced world, Kingsbury's collection serves as a reminder to slow down and appreciate the fine and quirky joys that life has to offer.

The collection goes live on April 11th, 2024.
