Biography


Bermudian artist Graham Foster is best known for his huge mural, 'The Hall of History', located in the Commissioner's House at the Bermuda National Museum in Dockyard, Bermuda.  The two storey, 1000 square foot interior mural depicts five centuries of Bermudian history, and took over 3 years to complete. It was officially opened by Her Majesty The Queen in 2009.
 
A professional artist since 1995, Foster's paintings tend to follow one of two directions - one inspired by Bermuda's flora, fauna, architecture and people that he renders in a uniquely surreal style.  The other style is looser, more expressionistic and is often influenced by dreams and the subconscious.
 
Foster is also a sculptor, working primarily in welded and forged steel. His sculptural pieces are strongly influenced by the tribal arts of Africa and the Pacific Rim.  In 2002, his welded steel triptych, '21st Century Fetish Family', was purchased for the Bermuda National Gallery's permanent collection.
 
Recent public art projects include the Yoko Ono-endorsed John Lennon tribute sculpture, 'Double Fantasy' (2011) which is currently located outside the Masterworks Museum of Art, Bermuda, and the Washington Mall's  'Maritime' tree grates (2010).
 
In 2012, Foster completed another mural at the Bermuda College library commemorating the works of Brian Burland, considered by many to be Bermuda's greatest author. In 2014 he completed a 200 square foot mural depicting the history of the Elbow Beach Hotel. In 2017 Foster’s painting “Wreck of the Sea Venture” was featured inthe Royal Gifts Exhibition at Buckingham Palace.
