Bill Jacklin (b. 1943) lives and works in New York and was elected a Royal Academician in 1991. Having worked initially as a graphic designer he went on to the Royal College of Art from 1964 to 1967. Jacklin has taught at Chelsea School of Art, Hornsey and the Royal College of Art. His early work was preoccupied with abstraction and he moved towards figuration in the mid 70s before becoming more concerned with movement and light. By 1985 Jacklin started to focus his painting on ‘Urban Portraits of the city in its various guises. Jacklin has had solo shows in London’s Marlborough Fine Art and New York’s Marlborough Gallery. Jacklin’s commissions have included the Bank of England, the Ivy Restaurant and De Beers and he has been the Official Artist-in-Residence for the British Council in Hong Kong.
