Alastair Brown is a contemporary still-life and figurative painter originally from Staffordshire. He studied for his Foundation Diploma in Fine Arts at Sutton Coldfield College then moved to London Atelier of Representational Art (LARA) in 2016 to complete his atelier training. At Lara, he studied the traditional techniques used in 19th Century ateliers and used the three-year programme to develop his skills and understanding of painting and drawing techniques. Having completed his training under Nicholas Chaundy in 2019, he then moved to Manchester where he has set up his studio.
Alastair's work has been featured in multiple exhibitions including the Royal Society of British Artists Annual Exhibition displayed in the Mall Galleries in London (2020), where he was awarded Highly Commended in the de Laszlo Foundation Prize. He also exhibited in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam in their 'Long Live Rembrandt' summer exhibition (2019).
