A highly reknowned architect, Philip Pank, was born in India in 1933 and later moved to London to train at the Architectural Association. He was greatly influenced by the calm and focus of the spaces created by Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright. However, as an artist his portraits and landscapes were vibrant and eclectic. Inspired by Paul Cezanne and Henry Matisse, Pank always dreamed of being an artist but his father encouraged him to pursue a more traditional field, which lead him to architecture. And yet, he never gave up painting; his weekly routine, for instance, included life-drawing classes at St Martins and the Royal Academy – something he continued until his death. When he wasn’t working, he’d spend most of his time in the studio he built in his award winning home in Kentish Town.
