Victor Pasmore was one of Britain’s most influential abstract artists. Born in Chelsham, Surrey, he later moved to London where he studied painting part-time at the Central School of Arts & Crafts. He began painting landscapes, still life and figures but later became well-known as an abstract artist, producing paintings, collages and constructions.
His Apollo Pavilion, built in the late 1960s in Peterlee, is one of England’s earliest large-scale works of public art. It paved the way for an explosion in publicly-commissioned art. Pasmore’s work can be found in collections around the world including Tate.
Victor Pasmore is represented worldwide by Marlborough Fine Art.
