Roy Powell (1935 - 2022)

Welsh artist, Roy Powell, has died aged 87.  

Born in Chepstow, Roy attended Monmouth School, 1952 – 1956, where art teacher, Otto Maciąg, encouraged him.  Roy was one of a number of outstanding artists who attended Cardiff College of Art in the 1950s, interrupted, in his case, by national service.

 

He taught in schools for a period, in the Midlands and London between 1959 and 1974 moving to the mid-Wales town of Brecon to teach at the high school. A well-known figure, in the town, he became involved at Brecon Cathedral as a warden.

It was in retirement from 1990 that Roy was able to flourish fully as an artist. He was a loyal and longstanding member of the Welsh Group, and a member of the Royal Watercolour Society of Wales.
