Brian Clarke (b.1953) is a world renowned, painter and architectural artist. Born in Oldham, his studies in England were enhanced by a scholarship to study contemporary continental stained glass, which helped open him to the potential for stained glass and its application to both religious and secular buildings.
Subsequently, his practice in architectural and autonomous stained glass, often on a monumental scale, has led to successive innovation and invention in fabrication, in a way that has radically stretched the boundaries of what the medium can do and express.
