Tom Bushnell studied painting at The Central & Ravensbourne Colleges of Art and Design and gained a BA Honours degree in Fine Art & Design. He has exhibited with some of the leading artists of our time, including Sir Peter Blake and John Hoyland. His paintings have also been accepted at the famous Royal Academy Summer Show and form part of collections in the UK and across the globe.
From age 8 he won the Art Prize every year at school. At age 15 he (whilst still at school) was commissioned to paint portraits of his Headmaster, the Local Mayor, and the Chief Education Officer of the Region.
Whilst only 16 he was interviewed for entry as a student at two world renowned Fine Art Schools, The Royal College of Art, and The Slade School of Fine Art. He was too young to go.
At age 20 he had a large abstract painting accepted and hung at the very prestigious "Young Contemporaries Show" in London. He was the only student accepted from his college into work.
