Edward Povey

Painter and muralist, born in London, who began painting aged eight. After comprehensive school he became an office boy at 16, but emigrated to Canada in 1969, where he became a member of the Baha’i Faith, sang in clubs and toured with his band Synergy and lived with the Blackfoot Indians. Working at a kibbutz in Israel in 1971 Povey painted the first of the many murals he became noted for, Abraham and Isaac, before returning to England and from 1972–3 doing a foundation course at Eastbourne College of Art and Design. From 1974 Povey lived in north Wales, engaged on a four-year graduate teacher-training course at University of Wales while painting many shopfront murals. Povey moved to Grenada, West Indies, in 1982, selling to American collectors and returning to Britain for occasional commissions.
