Artist Notes:
John Selway was born to Welsh parents in the small south Yorkshire colliery town of Askern, near Doncaster, he has lived and worked in Abertillery ever since his parents decided to return home to Wales in 1940. John was part of a golden generation at the Royal College of Art that included several fledgling Pop Art luminaries. He has been integral to Welsh Art for half a century and has been an influential tutor at both Newport and Carmarthen Art Colleges. Whether flirting with abstraction, drawing inspiration from literature or responding to a landscape, his primary concern still remains as always, the human condition. St Michaels Church in Abertillery has several particularly fine examples of his work.
