Stewart Forrest

You can see the series of art work on the water tank  at the Gelorup Community Centre in Hasties Road

As the Gelorup Community prepares to celebrate the 20th birthday of the Gelorup Community Centre, locals are reminded of a well known artist who left his mark there on the concrete water tank back in the nineties.  I recently caught up with artist Stewart Forrest while he, his wife and two children were holidaying with family in Stratham.

The water tank depicts a series of pictures on it’s circumference illustrating an evolving world.  When asked about his work on the tank he laughs and says “Oh that was a long time ago, I’ve improved a lot since then.” Even so when you view the pictures on the tank you can see it’s the work of someone with serious artistic talent.
