Guy Lester has been a full time landscape painter for so long that many trees that were planted at the time he left Camberwell Art School in 1979 have reached maturity.
Guy attended the foundation course at Farnham Art School in 1978. He then continued with a three-year fine art degree at Camberwell School of Art.?After this he lived on a barge in Burgundy for a decade painting landscapes.?On returning to England in 1992 he painted landscapes and murals to commission for nearly two decades.?Recently he has been slowly unravelling.
I am not at all sure what art is, and I have never found anyone else's definition convincing. My approach is based on the assumption that I have a habitual way of attempting some end, and find that I tune into something else more interesting.?In other words I consider the occupation to be a form of paid meditation.?The end product is a fossilised footprint, that someone can walk beside, or walk away from.
