Terry Cripps

Surbiton, United Kingdom

Born Tripoli, 1951. Lived in Singapore, Kenya, Wolverhampton, London, Gloucestershire and now London again. Educated at Cambridge School...

First a designer, then an art director, both in advertising and publishing, now a painter.
As a painter my work has been influenced by Tapies, Maties and Miro. As a photographer I am an admirer of my freind Malcolm Jackson, James Ravilious – English photgrapher 1939-1999 worked exclusively in Devon England, look him up on www.beaford-arts.co.uk , and Elliot Erwitt.

I publish books through Blurb.
Take a look and please contribute.
Most resent is the ‘Parish Portrait’ Photos of everyone who lived in my village on the Queens Jubilee.
My books are currently a way of publishing to my friends the stuff they have never seen and paintings they can’t afford.
Current books are themes that occur in my paintings, Erik for instance was from a set produced in Crete. Inspired buy the writings and characters of Linear A and B I have woven them into a myth story of a lost god.
Most resent is ‘Modernity’
I have recently republished the exhibition book of paintings commemorating my sister Trudy ‘Sisters’ and a new book ‘A fine day at the fair’ in the set of essays on life in Gloucestershire on the River Severn.
