JOURNALISM TRAVEL SCHOLARSHIP AWARD

"Welsh Artists’ colourful career flourishing with support from the Worshipful Livery Company of Wales”

Billy Bagilhole, born in Pwllheli on the Lleyn, graduated with a first class honours from Chelsea Art College in 2018 and struggled to continue with his painting due to the lack of affordable studio space in Central London. Assistance from the Worshipful Livery Company of Wales allowed Billy and his fellow Welshman, Cybi Williams from Blaenau to continue with their passion and realise their ambition by providing additional funding for a studio in Vauxhall.

Billy wanted to express his thanks by saying “without the support of the Livery Group we would not have the essential space to paint and I certainly would have struggled to accept the great honour of painting Sir Bryn Terfel”
The portrait was part of an S4C series called “ Wales on Canvas” and has served to raise the profile of Billy’s work. To view their work: billybagilhole.co.uk and cybiwilliams.com
