Keith Wilson studied at Methodist College, Belfast and the University of Ulster. In 1994, he received an Honour’s Degree in Visual Illustration from Edinburgh College of Art and in 1995 a Postgraduate Diploma in Illustration.
Wilson is a landscape painter with an exquisite touch. The works resonate with a quiet beauty. He aims to make the everyday apparent, appreciated and intriguing. His awards include the Axa Insurance drawing prize 2005 and the Hennessy Craig Scholarship award 2006, both at the Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin. Wilson was elected an Academician of the Royal Ulster Academy in 2010. He had a successful first solo exhibition at Oliver Sears Gallery in September 2012.
