Biography

Born in Newcastle - Under- Lyme in 1953, son of the welsh sculptor Jack Llewelyn Waldron (1923-1984). Educated at Stourbridge College of Art and Wolverhampton, graduating with a B.A. Honours in Art in 1976.

Since that time, Dylan has worked as a professional artist, showing and selling his work through various galleries and art fairs internationally. Since 1983, he has exhibited regularly in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

His work has been purchased for many private collections worldwide also the public collections of the West Midlands Art Association, Basildon Arts Trust, Leicester University, RBSA and Birmingham Museums Trust.

Dylan's painting style has its roots in traditional techniques, with each piece of work having between twenty and thirty layers of translucent colour glazes, built up to achieve depth of tone and luminosity, with a finely worked and highly detailed finish. Fast drying media such as acrylic or egg tempera are normally used and the support is usually archival quality paper, board or prepared panel. Dylan constructs and hand finishes the frames for each individual painting, which he sees as integral to the overall presentation of the work.

The subjects depicted are personal and carefully chosen, whether this is material for a still life, a domestic interior, a much loved landscape or a portrait / nude study.

Dylan undertakes commissions if they are in harmony with the regular themes of his work.
