Winston Branch studied art at the Slade School of Fine Art and University College London, UK, and the British School at Rome, Italy. He was a professor of art at the University of California (Berkeley, CA) and at Kansas State University (Manhattan, KS). Branch also taught at the Slade School, Chelsea Art School, Kingston Art School and Goldsmith’s College of Art in London.
Recognised from his early student days at the Slade School as having exceptional promise, Branch has received a succession of awards including the Prix de Rome, a DAAD Fellowship to Berlin, a Guggenheim Fellowship to New York, and a sponsorship to Belize from the Organization of American States.
Born in St Lucia, West Indies, Branch has spent most of his career in some of the world’s greatest centres for art, and his work forms part of the international avant-garde. Branch’s paintings are represented in many public and private collections, including the British Museum, the Contemporary Arts Society, the Arts Council of Great Britain and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, England; the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation in New York and the Legion of Honor – De Young Museum in San Francisco, United States among others.
