Renos is an established artist who lives in Barnet and for many years has been active with local arts, including The Barnet Collection.

He studied Graphic Arts, Design and Typography at St Martins (evenings), Sir John Cass (foundation), Ealing School of Art and London College of Printing. He started work in 1974 as a designer in the publicity department of Associated Newspapers and this led to a 30-year career with the Daily Mail.

He works with oils on the Sea-the Blue- the Landscape- the Townscape, in forms and colours showing his love of nature and beauty.

He has had many exhibitions of his work, both with groups and solo. Many of his works belong to both individuals and establishments. He welcomes commissions.


Recently, the artist revisited his old haunts of Fleet Street and he is now drawing the places and pubs of this historic centre of journalism, printing and media. Some of these drawings were specially produced in his 2011 themed calendar which became an instant success.

With good reviews and the popularity of this new style, the artist has been encouraged, to extend the subjects to cover the City, the River, London in general, Barnet and beyond. One such drawing, A View From St Paul's was selected and exhibited at BankSide Gallery in the autumn of 2010. For the 2nd year running his work Under the Embankment Bridge was selected and exhibited at BankSide Gallery in Sept. 2011.
