Australian born artist Howard Tangye is a contemporary figurative artist who is best known for his portraits created in a mixture of pastels, water colour, and ink. His works are characterized by fluid lines that suggest movement and depth of character, as Tangye is able to perfectly capture his subject’s personality with only a few strokes of his pen. Tangye’s background is in fashion, having completed a degree at Central Saint Martins before carrying out a post-graduate degree at Parsons School of Design in New York. Tangye is now a senior lecturer and director of Womenswear on the BA Fashion course at Central Saint Martins, and has worked with some of the most renowned designers in the fashion world, drawing collections for Dior and John Galliano. via
