William Campbell

Artist William Campbell introduces the tools of his trade as he paints for Ulster Television’s cameras

Documentary 1974 7 mins


Join disabled artist William Campbell in Studio 10 10 to discover the inspiration behind his expressive oil paintings. Watch his painting technique as he creates a sarcastic scene of a dystopian London using specially adapted brushes. He also discusses the symbolism of several works we don’t see in these Ulster Television rushes.

These rushes are from Spectrum, a fortnightly programme on Ulster Television that brought Northern Irish arts matters to a local audience for half an hour from 1971-1988. This material is courtesy of the UTV archive.
