Ross Eccles (b.1937)
He was born in Lancashire in 1937. He studied Architecture at the Birmingham School of Architecture and practiced as an architect for 30 years before retiring in 1991 in order to devote himself full time to art.
His early work was influenced by his architectural training but he soon developed a distinct, colourful, abstract style that reveals the artist's own philosophy and vision. Ross sees his art as being highly autobiographical- each painting is a reflection and extension of his self.
Ross is a continuously evolving painter and doesn't limit himself to a particular medium or style. Elements of Surrealism, Cubism and Abstract Expressionism can be observed in his quirky paintings, and he has said himself that artists like Salvador Dali, Picasso and Pollock have had a profound influence on his methods of painting and outlook as an artist.
Ross has been based in Dublin, Ireland since 1971.
