Howard Flanagan is an emerging international artist, widely known for his individual highly detailed paintings. A finalist in the 2017 Sunday Times Watercolour Artist of the Year competition, Howard has worked this year almost exclusively with the organisers of the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race and the children’s charity Unicef, to produce 12 paintings, a series of limited edition prints and a calendar, all to be sold in aid of Unicef.  He takes inspiration from people and landscapes including the exclusion zone surrounding the Chernobyl nuclear reactor in the Ukraine, which he visited this spring. Looking around, he was both inspired and humbled by the struggles of the people who continue to live there. Working mainly in pastel, watercolour and ink, Howard seeks to capture quiet, unadorned natural beauty in the eyes of people struggling with every day life and the landscape around us.
