This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Victoria, B.C. on April 20, 1911, Coates came to Los Angeles in 1923 and became interested in art while at Redondo Beach High School.  After studying on a scholarship at Chouinard Art School (1936-38), he served as assistant to Diego Rivera in painting frescoes on Treasure Island for the GGIE.   His studies at UCLA were interrupted by WWII.  After the war he obtained teaching credentials from UC Berkeley, and in 1948 moved to Nevada where he taught art at Las Vegas High School.  In 1956 he returned to California, earned a master of fine arts degree from Claremont Graduate School, and remained a resident of Claremont until his death on Nov. 17, 1972.

Painting mostly watercolor landscapes, his early representational works later evolved into abstractions.

Exh: LA County Fair, 1935 (2nd prize); GGIE, 1939; Oakland Art Gallery, 1940; SFAA, 1940.

In: LACMA; San Diego Museum; Redondo High School; Canyon Hotel, Yellowstone Nat'l Park.
