Artist Terence Gilbert SEA

Terence Gilbert is a chronicler of the contemporary scene. This he achieves with supreme success in his unique style combining realism with impressionism. He is present at events where action at every level of society is taking place: polo at Windsor, racing at Longchamp, rowing at Henley Royal Regatta, or ballet at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.

The quality of his canvases is based on assured draughtsmanship and exceptional observation enabling Terence to capture an exact moment of action as well as the atmosphere of the setting where the event is happening.

Having studied at Camberwell Arts School in London, his knowledge of structure and anatomy enable him to portray the bodily tension of a sporting or theatrical moment: the stance of a fighter; the leap of a ballet dancer, a jockey's balance on a race horse and the dexterity of a jazz musician.

Terence’s range of work is remarkably varied. He is extremely well-known and highly regarded for his equestrian portraits and his paintings on racing and sporting themes. Moreover, he has achieved international renown for his portraiture. His most significant commissions include a painting of HM The Queen and President Reagan riding at Windsor, which was presented to the President at the White House and a portrait of HM King Hussein of Jordan painted at Sandhurst. He has been commissioned by stars of film and stage, as well as painting many sporting heroes.

Terence has exhibited successfully worldwide and is in constant demand for new paintings.
