Jeff Nuttall (UK)

Jeff Nuttall was a lovely, lovely absolutely lovely man. He was great fun, great balls of belly laughter and without any side to him. And he spent a life open, adding his imagination to creation... Jeff was up and for it to the very end

Ray Gosling

Jeff Nuttall was born in 1933 in Clitheroe and grew up in Herefordshire. Painter, sculptor, poet, essayist, caricaturist, jazz musician and performance artist, he was a seminal figure as a teacher of fine art in schools and polytechnics from the 1960s until the late eighties. He later acted in films and television. He died suddenly in Abergavenny in January 2004.

If he had not existed, it would have been imperative to invent him. He was an inspiration. And remains.
