Graham Boyd is interested in the way painting acts as a metaphor for both time and space to reveal past and present simultaneously. It is clear that there is a multiplicity of allusions to nature present in his work, reflecting both his earlier experience of African light and vastness and also the farming landscape surrounding his Hertfordshire home.
His work is in public and private collections worldwide and in UK including in the Walker Gallery, Liverpool and Trinity College, Oxford.
Boyd studied at Watford School of Art and London University Institute of Education. From 1976-1993 he was the Course Leader for BA Fine Art and Head of Painting at the University of Hertfordshire.
