Berry was born 1925 in Smallthorne, N. Staffordshire, England.
He studied at Burslem and at the the RCA. An early introduction
to Robert Colquhoun and Robert MacBryde made a great impression
on him, as did the many new art movements of the time.
did, however, pursue his own path, with an individual style
and means of expressing a deep affinity with the working people
and the gritty world of the pit villages where he was born
and raised. He was constantly drawn toward people who showed
the stresses and strains of their existence in their faces
and their posture and they were the characters he preferred
to depict in his work.
taught at North Staffordshire Polytechnic, Manchester College
of Art and Chelsea School of Art and was also a poet and playwrite.
His autobiography "A Three and Sevenpence Halfpenny Man"
gives an interesting insight into the events which impacted
on his life.
exhibitions were held at Stoke on Trent City Museum and Art
Gallery in 1984 and The Gallery, Manchester in 1995.
