Dennis Syrett is a no nonsense figurative painter, whose favorite subjects range from the hustle and bustle of New York, to tropical Barbados, India, Hong Kong, the Middle East, Spain and the South of France.
He took up painting seriously in his mid-thirties and soon became well established in the art world, exhibiting at major London galleries whilst concurrently achieving membership of a number of premier national art societies. He was elected as president of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters in 2004.
Most recently Dennis was made a full member of the Society of Equestrian Artists. He celebrated the honor in style by winning the SEA’s prestigious Cuneo Medal at their annual exhibition in 2012.
