Leonard Dobson Artist

Original paintings by Leonard Dobson

Leonard Dobson began his career in Art in 1957 at the Guildford School of Art. During a five year scholarship he majored in Graphic Design, graduating with a National Diploma in Design and a pass with Distinction.

In his early years Leonard had some success as an International Poster Designer, winning commissions from London Transport and The British Transport Commission with his designs for sightseeing tours. In the mid-sixties, technology introduced large reproduction posters of photographs, linked to the advent of television commercials. This sudden advancement herald the death of the International Poster Designer virtually overnight. Leonard needed a job and he entered the commercial world of advertising design. After many years in graphic design Leonard attained the highest professional qualification in graphic design: FCSD - A Life Fellowship of the Chartered Society of Designers.

Upon retirement from the commercial world Leonard felt that there was still some unfinished business; he had to find an outlet for his creativity in terms of pure creative art. In 2001, in a highly competitive world of fine art Leonard started to sell his paintings of Venice and Cornish Fishing Harbours. In the summer of 2018, under the auspices of Courtenay's Fine Art, Leonard was guided into painting scenes of retro-romanticism - capturing the magic moments of dance and relationships: an exciting new chapter had just begun.
