Seminal works.

The literal meaning of the word ‘seminal’ means strongly influencing later developments – And as Art is alway in flux, Seminal is perhaps the correct word to use for this artist, one who has been painting since his enrolment at an Art School for gifted kids in 1962. Now approaching Seventy years old Denis Taylor is still developing his art- or so he says…

“An artist should never stop progressing and developing – Picasso was still experimenting into his nineties… So, I want to do that, dying in front of a new canvas must be a glorious way to check out and leave planet Earth…”

On this page painters TUBES magazine, for which the artist is the Editor in Chief, is delighted to have chosen a select number of works that illustrate the artists development.


The paintings shown date in chronological order – 1980’s through to 1990’s. The more recent work of Denis Artist can be found on other pages on this website.
