Wynne Jenkins (1937 - 2019)

Wynne was a native of Llangennech, Llanelli. He was educated at Llanelli Boy’s Grammar School, and graduated from University of Wales, Swansea.

Carmarthen was  his home town for over 30 years. Before he retired he was the Deputy Headmaster of Ysgol Gyfun Bro Myrddin. He has presented a series of television programmes on the visual arts in Wales for S4C.

His lastt exhibition at the Attic Gallery opened on Saturday 5 May and  closed 26 May 2018.

The form and colour of the landscape and the buildings of Wales are his love and inspiration. His initial influence was John Bowen, Artist and his Art Master at Llanelli Boys Grammar School.

He admired the work of Kyffin Williams, Josef Herman, Will Roberts, Claudia Williams, and Shani Rees James but his main influence is Gwilym Prichard. Through his painting he has the opportunity to transform "everyday" scenes into an art form - the timelessness of Wales' seascapes and mountainRs artistically unfold. The palette knife, rather the brush ensures a precision of relevent detail brought to the eye of the observer.
