George J Harding

George is a Bristol based artist and studied fine art at Chelsea (UAL).

His plein air landscape paintings are about experiencing the enjoyment and enrichment of the natural world that reflect the subjectivity of colour, light, and form, portraying momentary impressions.

George was awarded a DYCP Arts Council Grant after gaining an interest in plein air painting during the pandemic as an activity for his wellbeing.

During this period he read the book, The Salt Path by Raynor Winn and felt inspired by the story as well as other impressionist artists like Albert Marquet.

George decided to do his own journey of the South West Coast Path called The Painted Path starting in Exmoor going along the coastline until reaching Bournemouth in Dorset.

George’s work appears in the Wellcome Collection, Bethlem Museum of the Mind and Bristol Museum amongst other public and private collections.
