Tom CoatesNigel Cooke
I had the previledge of having Tom Coates as my Art Tutor at a private school in Henley-upon-Thames in England. I had no interest in the arts up to that part but somehow he made the previously boring subject something of profound and abiding interest. We even helped him prepare for an exhibition at the RA in the mid 60's featuring the world wars. He was also an awesome goalkeeper and we as kids often accompanied him to games.
