Charles Willmott originally studied at Birmingham College of Art in the 60`s but succumbed to the world of commerce and advertising during the 70`s and 80`s.
In the late 80`s he took a trip to the far East where he acquired a deep interest in the Orient and its cultures. Inspired by this in 1990 he returned to his first love, painting, culminating in his unique one-man show in 1991 featuring Japan`s national sport, Sumo.
