Trevor Bell was a Leeds-born artist (1930-2017), he was awarded a scholarship to attend the Leeds College of Art between 1947 and 1952. In 1955 he was encouraged by Terry Frost and moved to St Ives in Cornwall, which at the time was the epicentre of British abstract art. After 5 years of developing his technique in St Ives, and being awarded Major Prize Winner at the Biennale de Paris, Bell moved back to his hometown where he was offered the Gregory Fellowship in Painting at the University of Leeds. It was during this time that Bell developed his shaped canvases.
Over the years Bell’s work has been displayed in Whitechapel Gallery in London, Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C., the London Tate Gallery and the Tate St Ives.
