Awarded an OBE in 1998 for his contribution to British art and art education, abstract painter Sir Terry Frost is one of the most important British artists of the 20th century.
Using bold colors and simplified, geometric forms, through his work Frost evoked moments and events that had produced profound reactions in him.
Frost studied under Victor Pasmore at Camberwell School of Art in London, where he came into contact with the work of the St Ives group (Ben Nicholsom, Barbara Hepworth, Peter Lanyon and Roger Hilton, among others), which influenced his abstract style. He also experimented with collages and constructions. Sir Terry Frost was elected Royal Academician by London's Royal Academy of Arts in 1992.
Frost held his first SOLO EXHIBITION at Leicester Galleries in Leicester, England, in 1952. He subsequently exhibited regularly in London and in 1961 celebrated his first solo show abroad at the Bertha Schaeffer Gallery in New York. Other major solo exhibitions include:
2000: Royal Academy of Art, London.
1990: Mayor Gallery, London.
1976: Serpentine Gallery, London.
1971: ICA (Institute of Contemporary Art), London.
