Sadly Noel Haring passed away in August 2008. As a memory of his talent, his excellent work (both original paintings and limited edition fine art prints), continue to be available for sale. Please contact us using the email address above.
Having graduated in Design from The Royal College of Art in 1957, Noël Haring started his own industrial and graphic design business. He saw a turning point in his artistic career when a friend introduced him to working in watercolour.
Noël Haring has exhibited at The Royal Watercolour Society Summer Exhibition since 1992 and all major exhibitions at the Mall Galleries (Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, Royal Society of Portrait, Royal Society of Marine) including the most prestigious one: The Singer & Friedlander /Sunday Times Watercolour Competition.
In 1997, HRH The Prince of Wales selected all the paintings Noël submitted for The Discerning Eye Exhibition.
In 2000 Noël Haring was a prize winner at the Singer & Friedlander/ Sunday Times competition, with his picture “Classic Car in Havana”. His meticulously observed watercolour of a dilapidated colonial-style building bathed in brilliant sunlight, with a well-preserved old banger parked on a road outside, is a considerable achievement, not least because it gives not a hint of how complicated it was to get it to look natural” wrote Dr Frank Whitford Art Editor of Sunday Times.
In November 2005, a new Prize Exhibition organised by the Lynn Foundation together with the Painter-Stainers Company gave Noël opportunity to once again show his talent. His picture “Morning in Brighton” was one of the 12 selected watercolours among the 53 works of mix media accepted out of more than 700 pictures submitted.
For a number of years, until its closure, Noël Haring was regularly exhibiting at The Gallery in Virginia Water where he held, in 2002, a very successful One Man Show about his work on Havana.
