Australian born artist Howard Tangye is a contemporary figurative artist who is best known for his portraits created in a mixture of oils, pastels, water colour, inks and graphite. His works are characterized by fluid lines that suggest movement and depth of character, perfectly captured working directly from the sitter. An exhibition of his drawings was exhibited at Hus Gallery London in 2014 and coincided with the book launch of “Within – Howard Tangye” published by Stinsensqueeze in Paris and London. Tangye is now devoting all his time to painting and drawing after teaching at Central Saint Martins, in the school of Fashion and Textiles for more than three decades.
