Paul Mount

-

1922-2009. A graduate of the Royal College of Art, London, Mount briefly taught at the Winchester School of Art before moving to Nigeria to set up an art department at the College of Technology in Lagos. His abstract works, inspired by music and architecture are reminiscent of Hepworth, but also drew on the tribal sculptures around where he worked. He later on moved to Cornwall where the landscape around him as well as machinery gave fresh creativity to his work.
