Arthur K. Maderson (b.1942)
London born, Irish based impressionist painter Arthur Maderson studied at the Camberwell School of Art. In 1963, during his final year, he won the prestigious Anna Berry Award in open competition.
It was not until 1982, at the age of 40 that he felt confident enough to exhibit his paintings. From then on Maderson enjoyed a series of critically acclaimed sell-out solo-exhibitions throughout Ireland, Britain, Europe and the United States of America. In 1987, he was awarded the Cornelissen Award for the 'Most Distinguished Painting' from the Royal West of England Academy. In 1993, he won the Royal Hibernian Academy Abbey Stained Glass Studio Award for the most distinguished picture. He has subsequently represented Ireland in a number of prestigious shows. He is also a regular exhibitor with the Royal Academy (RA) in London.
Maderson lives between Waterford and the South of France.
