Baz East entered his first studio as a trainee in 1954 and spent much of his early career in commercial art followed by a number of years in scientific and technical illustration. Baz was extensively commissioned in freelance book illustration; the Warne’s series of Observer books alone contain over 500 of his illustrations. He worked for the Open University, Department of Graphic Design, from which he took early retirement from his position of Senior Graphic Artist in 1988 with the aim of painting full-time. Landscapes and outdoor themes predominate his work with oil and watercolours; oil being the main media of his choice.

Most of the work in this exhibition has never been exhibited before and, as well as his more traditional landscapes, it includes abstract work which Baz has been working on very recently.
