Will Calver is a graduate of Falmouth University (BFA). He is a figurative painter based in Kent and Cornwall. In his paintings he “combines the techniques of classical figuration with a freer hand”, using an alla prima method working from direct observation which entails “spending time in the immediate presence of the subject and discovering its individuality.”
Calver has exhibited across the UK, including at Turner Contemporary Gallery and the Mall Galleries.
Sophie is a portrait created in Calver’s previous studio in Falmouth.
This work was selected to show at LARA’s Graduating in Paint, an exhibition of artists working in innovative ways across the field of painting who have graduated from art schools across the UK.
