WINCUP, Adrian C.

1954 - ?

Adrain Wincup

Born in Lowestoft, Suffolk in 1954, son of Donald C. Wincup and his wife Betty I. née Belton, who married at Lowestoft in 1953. His talent at painting came through at an early age and at school one of the walls in the art class was nicknamed the 'Wincup Wall' and he became keen artist. At his last employer, Richards Shipbuilders, Lowestoft he sold paintings to fellow workers but in 1994, when the company closed, Adrian decided to become a professional painter. He held his first exhibition in the same year at the old Garden Gallery, Southwold, Suffolk. Adrian sails on the rivers and backwaters of the Norfolk Broads gaining inspiration as he glides past the reeds rustling in the summer breeze or becalmed on a still evening, with the red sky mirrored on the surface of the water and the banks of mist rolling off the marshes onto the river. The Mediterranean with the colourful, beauty and reflections of Venice Italy and the bright colours of flora against the white walls and narrow passage ways of Greece and Spain also draws his search for inspiration. He has held many successful exhibitions in Norwich, Lowestoft, Southwold, Aldeburgh, The Pond gallery at Snape Maltings plus numerous other venues in and around Norfolk and Suffolk. He married in the Waveney district of Suffolk in 1984, Alison V. Read. A member of Suffolk Open Studios from 44 Kevington Drive, Oulton Broad, Lowestoft, Suffolk. www.adrianwincup.com
