Charlie Parker is an entirely self-taught artist based in Durham, who is based in the north-east of the UK.
Within the last 15 years he has focused almost exclusively on portraiture and the human figure. This subject area has proved to be a passion for Charlie. The challenge of representing each person’s particular character and unique personality, continues to prove endlessly fascinating. Much time is spent drawing from life, whether, within life drawing classes or within more informal settings.
Through careful study of the great masters, often by visiting galleries, Charlie was able to overcome the difficulty of been partially colour blind. Within the last 25 years Charlie has also exhibited throughout the UK, and sold internationally. He has also participated in art based television programmes and achieved success within art competitions. More recently he has run portraiture workshops and continues to complete individual commissions.
