Born in South Africa, and trained at the Royal College, Ansel Krut emerged early as a leading London Painter in the 1980s, exhibiting at Fischer Fine Art, Jason Rhodes, and, more recently, with George Adams in New York. His early pictures often conjured mythological tableaux within a murky tonality: in his recent imagery, learning partly from Guston, he has arrived at a starker and sharper vision. Ansel Krut was a prize winner in 2002’s Jerwood Drawing Exhibition.
