Carl Chapple

Originally from Dartmoor, after studying at St Martin’s School of Art, London, Chapple spent time in Greece, the Czech Republic, Turkey and Italy. Returning to the UK in the mid-90s, he joined several South London life drawing groups, met a number of inspiring painters and models, and began working almost exclusively from the figure. Since moving to South Wales in 2003 Chapple has worked from life in his studio in Barry. www.carlchapple.com
