Edwin Apps

Born in 1931 - France


Edwin Apps was born in Wingham, Kent, in 1931. An actor most of his life, today he lives and works as a painter in France.

Born into the traditional world of auctioneering and hop farming, a family quarrel led to his being sent to the St Edmund’s Clergy Orphan School in Canterbury in 1940, an experience that has subsequently influenced much of his life and work.

His passion for theater led him to study at the Central School in London before starting a career as an actor and scriptwriter. In the '50s, '60s and '70s, he plays in most BBC successful series such as "Destination Danger", "Benny Hill", or "The Avengers".

In the late '70s he moves to France, in the Marais Poitevin. He dedicates to painting full time. He prefers oil painting and uses pigments that he makes himself. He is well known for his narrative driven paintings of bishops in unconventional situations.
