Charles Moxon – 1991

Looking at Charles Moxon’s intricate paintings you’d be forgiven for not believing that they were the work of a 21-year-old, still perfecting his craft at art school. Charles’ eye for detail, technique and life-like qualities are astonishing, and it’s little wonder that the Camberwell College of Art student has been nominated for this year’s Young Masters Prize. First seen at BBC TV Art programme “Show Me The Monet Art Competition and latterly an exhibition in Kensington and Cork St London.

Charles Moxon’s portraits draw on past techniques, in particular those of the Dutch 17th-century Old Masters. He combines these traditional techniques with the added observational detail and hyper-reality of contemporary photorealism.

Accepted for the BP Portrait Awards 2016 Charles painted a portrait of Harriet Harman MP
