Howard Tangye (b.1948, Australia) has been an influential force in fashion for decades. Lecturing at Central Saint Martins for 35 years, including 16 years as head of BA Womenswear. There, he tutored many contemporary greats, including John Galliano, Stella McCartney, Christopher Kane, Richard Nicoll, Julie Verhoeven and Hussein Chalayan.
Tangye’s work is held in many important collections, both public and private, including the Victoria and Albert Museum and the National Portrait Gallery in London.
Tangye explores the nuances of the human form in an effort to expose the sitter’s essence and energy. Employing a decisive line with bold applications of richly layered oils, pastel, watercolour, chalk and other media - these life studies articulate how the process of drawing offers a freedom to examine emotion through texture, detail, and materiality in a way other mediums are unable to.
