Jeremy Barlow’s introduction to the world of commercial art came at the age of 12 when he successfully negotiated the sale of a watercolor to an aunt for half a crown. Inevitable, however, it was to be some years before these embryonic signs blossomed into a successful career as a full-time artist.
Jeremy Barlow’s travels have taken him further than ever before, due to becoming the recipient of a fellowship granted by the San Ei Gen Foundation, an institution set up to foster cultural exchange in the arts between the UK and Japan. This prestigious award allowed him to spend time studying and painting in Japan.
His visual exploration of this unfamiliar landscape and ancient culture steps beyond the sun-dappled Venetian balconies and busy boulevard cafés of provincial French villages and reconfirms a delight in painting atmospheric and evocative scenes, reminiscent of one’s own experiences abroad.
Barlow has exhibited at the Royal Academy, the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, the Royal Society of British Marine Artists and is represented in public, private and corporate collections worldwide. He is an elected member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI) and became a council member in 1995. He currently resides in Norfolk, UK.
