Artists: Painters, Sculptors, Art and Crafts
Every town, village and remote little hamlet in Wales has a resident artist. It's nice to know that this art and craft tradition is as strongas ever and the proof is here within our list of famous Welsh artists, sculptors and craftsmen. You'll find references to Cefyn Burgess, David Emmanuel, Charles Byrd, Ernest Zobole, Christopher Williams, Gwen John and more!

Graham SutherlandLeading 20th century painter.
Will EvansA notable painter of town and countryside. He made a series of water-colour paintings of the devastation following the 1941 blitz on Swansea.
Julie RobertsTrained in Wrexham, London and Glasgow. Against alternating strips of solid colour, Julie Roberts sets sinister objects (e.g.: mortuary tables with shrouded corpses). Painted in oil paint with some agitation and manipulation, which at a distance has a powerful naturalism against the pulsating acrylic colour.
