In September 2017 I received a letter from Alan Warburton, an artist who lives in the Rhondda. It included pictures of a number of murals he has produced around South Wales over the years, together with newspaper cuttings about them. Unfortunately for various reasons the murals no longer exist, so the photos represent the sole surviving record.
From his letter I learned that Alan is a retired Art teacher. He no longer produces murals but does produce paintings, pen and ink drawings, etchings, and lino prints, which are sold through the Number 10 Gallery in Rochdale.
The first picture is a scan of an article that describes Alan’s career. The rest are photos of his murals, and some of his more recent work ‘for sale’.
Some of these pictures appeared in Issue 17 of The Button Files.
