Ian Cooper

Local Artist - Ian Cooper
The Artist

Ian Cooper was born in Manchester in 1947
and and left school at the age of 14 though it was another year
before he was able to get a job.

Ian had always loved art but it was a long
wait, (until he was 33), before he entered the Manchester Polytechnic
(now the Metropolitan University of Manchester) to do a Fine
Arts Degree from 1982-5 .

After this, he taught art part time at Salford
and Manchester Colleges for 3 years.

He now runs a small bricklaying business
for 3 or 4 days a week, and spends the rest of his time painting.
Ian confesses to loving the days when building work is rained

Ian has held several exhibitions, from a
one man show in West Didsbury in 1986 and in the Holden Gallery
at the Manchester Polytechnic also in that year.

He was artist in residence for 2 weeks at
the former Fletcher Moss Art Gallery in Didsbury.

Apart from this his work has been shown in
many mixed exhibitions at the Castlefield Gallery and other
minor events.

Ian presently lives in Withington, Manchester
20, and can be contacted by:
