Kenneth Webb is a British painter best known for his expressionistic, colorful, and thickly painted landscapes. He often takes inspiration from the scenes surrounding his home in Connemara, Ireland, and works in a style reminiscent of the palette knife paintings Maurice de Vlaminck. In addition to landscapes, Webb has explored subjects ranging from Spanish streets and classical nudes to sunlit forests and harbors. “Whenever I am taken by a theme, I seem to have to start all over and invent my own pictorial structure,” the artist has said of his oeuvre. Born in 1927 in London, United Kingdom, he went on to study art at Gloucester College and exhibit at the Royal Academy before moving to Belfast in 1953, where he became the head of the painting department at the Ulster College of Art. Webb’s works are in the collections of the Ulster Museum in Belfast, the Government Art Collection in London, and the Carrickfergus Council in Northern Ireland, among others. The artist lives and works in Devon in England, and spend the summer months at work in Connemara, Ireland, where he has had his studio since the 1970s.
