Jeffrey Steele in his Studio

Here’s a cool picture of one of my favourite Welsh artists, Jeffrey Steele, best known for his Op-Art works. I’m guessing the snap was taken in the early ‘60s? In my imagination this is how all male artists are meant to look – suited, weird beard, intense stare. I love his studio, too, with its strange canvasses and spartan bedstead off to the right suggesting a certain artistic asceticism. This groovy snap was taken by another Welsh artist David Trace whom you can learn about here.
