Bill Jacklin  (British, 1943) 

whitespace
Bill Jacklin (English, b.1943) attended Walthamstow School of Art from 1960 to 1961 to study graphic design, and he worked as a graphic designer at Studio Seven, London, in 1961 and 1962. In 1962, he returned to his studies at Walthamstow and began studying painting. Soon after, he enrolled in the Royal College of Art in London from 1964 to 1967. Jacklin's early career was marked by his Abstract style. However, by the mid-1970s, his work moved toward Figuration. In particular, his pieces examined light and movement. In 1975, Jacklin held his first two solo exhibitions. One took place at Upper Gallery, and the other was held at Nigel Greenwood Inc., both of which are in London. That same year, Jacklin was awarded an Arts Council Bursary. He held many solo exhibitions at Marlborough Fine Art, London, and at Marlborough Gallery, New York, throughout the 1970s and 1980s, and he also took part in many group exhibitions during this time period. Over the course of those ten years, the artist also received many commission jobs from the Bank of England, De Beers, and the Washington National Airport, among others.

In 1985, Jacklin moved to New York. Since that time, the city has been his primary subject. His work in New York explores many different aspects of the city; his paintings often focus on the city's famous landmarks. However, many of his paintings involve large crowds that are constantly in flux or in smaller, more intimate moments. In 1991, Jacklin was elected a Royal Academician. Two years later, he became the Official Artist-in-Residence for the British Council in Hong Kong.

Jacklin’s work can be found in many museums and galleries around the world, including the Arts Council of Britain, the Metropolitan Museum in New York, and the Tate gallery in London, which is home to such works as Northern Light and Catena. Today, Jacklin continues to live and paint in New York.
