The Mysterious Allegories of Roy Fairchild
Written exclusively for Park West Gallery by Roy Fairchild.
Roy Fairchild blends the technical skill of his background in graphic design and illustration with a love of Renaissance art to create his widely collected etchings and serigraphs.Fairchild was born in Surrey, England in 1953. He began to draw as a child and at 16 he began to study technical illustration, earning his degree in graphic design. Fairchild set up a studio and continued to develop as an artist, supporting himself and his family by working as a freelance illustrator. He illustrated numerous items, including books, record sleeves, advertisements, and graphic works under the name “Woodard.” By the 1980s, Fairchild reached a level of financial security that allowed him to pursue his art full-time and he began signing his works.
