“Born in 1945, Brian West began painting in oils at an early age later attending Mansfield College of Art. In his professional career has specialised in sporting imagery, seeking to portray the drama, colour and spectacle of the sporting world. He has exhibited widely with great success and has been commissioned by many famous names from the world of sport.” (Sotheby’s Football & Racing Sale Catalogue 1998)
