John Pumfrey FSAI


RIBA retd. Fellow and Past President of the SAI and Vice Chairman of the Reading Guild of Artists. No longer taking commissions for perspective illustration of proposed buildings. Instead, I am currently making an exhibition of myself, my art and the illustrator’s view of architecture and related arts via powerpoint presentations and workshops at Art Guilds and Clubs, University of the Third Age, Probus, Schools, Rotary etc. All to promote public interest in observing and engaging with the built environment.

Despite the media boxes ticked, the images also include Liquid acrylics (2 & 5), tube acrylics (no.4), charcoal (no.11), gouache & pastel (no.13), Conte chalk (12) and no.10 is a collagraph plate in cardboard, pva and intaglio ink. I have just acquired pure pigment from the rocks at Roussillon in southern France
