This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in London, and living in England until 1985, when he moved to New York City, Bill Jacklin has earned his artistic reputation for city genre and figure paintings and murals, many of them 'hazy-seeming' crowd scenes of people moving about the city.  Early in his career, he focused on abstraction but in the mid 1970s moved increasingly to figurative work.  Jacklin's mediums include monoprints, etchings, watercolors, oil and pastel.

Jackin studied graphics in London from 1960 to 1961 at the Walthamstow School of Art, and then worked in Holburn as a graphic designer.  In 1962, he again enrolled at Walthamstow School and studied painting.  From 1964 to 1967, he studied at the Royal College of Art, and then from 1967 to 1975, taught at the Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College of Art as well as schools in Surrey and Kent.

In 1975, he had the first of two solo exhibitions in London, and later in New York City.  Among his commissions in England are paintings for the Bank of England, De Beers, and the Ivy Restaurant.  In Washington DC, he completed a mural titled The Rink for the North Terminal of Reagan National Airport.

In 1991, he was elected an Academician at the Royal Academy of London, and in 1993, was named official Artist-in-Residence in Hong Kong for the British Council.
