Coming Up: Bill Wynn....Impressions of Climbers.

This Friday, Harold Drasdo writes about his late friend Bill Wynn. Probably the best climber/artist you’ve never heard of ! After settling in the N Wales uplands via Derbyshire, Bill earned his bread and butter as a commercial artist. Illustrating children’s books, television storyboards and working as an art tutor. However, it is through his passion for rock climbing that his unique style really breaks free from the creative shackles of commerce and finds its true expression through his exciting impressions of climbers in action. So many artists describe themselves as ‘mountain artists’ but few have captured so well or so imaginatively the human form engaged in mountain activity.
