Colin Ruffell

A pioneer of acrylics from the early 1960’s when they first became available in the UK, Colin paints his original paintings on board or canvas. Always an early adopter of new technologies, Colin became involved in developing the publishing benefits of print on demand using inkjet printers and pigmented inks on fine art paper or canvas (giclée). His latest interest focuses on acrylographs, a new hybrid art form combining giclée and original painting. The process involves digital image creation on fine art canvas, hand enhanced with acrylic over-painting giving every image unique new elements, textures and highlights.
Colin Ruffell was born in 1939 and in 1965, aged 26, after studying at both Hornsey Art College and Portsmouth Art College he became a full-time professional artist. Since then he is proud and happy to have survived!
