BAFTA-winning Fakenham artist to feature in virtual exhibition

A Fakenham artist is among just two other Norfolk artists featured in this year's Creative Coverage virtual exhibition.

Keith Tutt's painting 'Silver Birch, Bintree' will feature in the exhibition alongside works by fellow Norfolk artists John Atkinson from Diss, and Sue Purser Hope from Cromer.

Keith said: "I know what I have received from the paintings that I have loved throughout my life and I wish to communicate and contribute to others in the same way.

"My portraits are an attempt to find and reveal something new and not normally witnessed in the subject. I love the process of painting people and of how they can suddenly appear in front of me. Sometimes it feels almost miraculous."

In 2000, Keith won a BAFTA award for his work on the BBC children’s TV series ‘Pablo – the little red fox’.

Based in Walsingham, the artist appeared on a 2019 series of Sky Arts' Landscape Artist of the Year.

The artist opened his own studio in Fakenham in 2019, but has worked as a screenwriter, author and TV documentary maker since he was a student.

He said: "I love colour too and feel that dynamic arrangements of colour are one of the great gifts that the artist can give to their audience.

"The colour in a painting never stops resonating and radiating; it keeps on giving and broadcasting to the world."
