Alesso B by Michael Tyzack

Just heard that former John Moores prize winner, Michael Tyzack, died at the weekend. Michael won the prize in 1965 with his abstract piece, Alesso B (shown). The win put him into the limelight and led to him being invited to Charleston in 1976 to set up a studio art department at the city’s college.  More details on Tyzack and his work can be found on the Charleston Post & Courier site.
