Bernard Fallon is a graduate of the Liverpool College of Art and the Leicester Polytechnic School of Photography. He has spent a lifetime in the visual arts as a painter, teacher, and photographer.

Fallon’s strong landscape and still life painting derive from his direct observation of nature, and training in the thoroughly grounded traditions of fine art. His work shows not only his integrity as a plein air painter, but also his direct appreciation of the visible world. He works mostly with oils and pastels, and his paintings are in collections throughout the United States and Europe.

His work has also been shown at the Los Angeles Maritime Museum, Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, Long Beach Museum of Art, Oceanside Museum, Pasadena Museum of Californian Art, Torrance Art Museum, the Autry Museum of the American West, and in the Capitol Building in Washington D.C.

Most recently he has been exhibiting at the Art Directors Guild in NoHo at Gallery 800.

Fallon is an artist member of the Redondo Beach Art Group, PVAC Artists Open Group, and P V Painters. He is also a long-standing member of the California Art Club, and a charter member of the Pastel Society of Southern California.

He is also an author, and wrote a memoir,  Bernard Fallon’s Liverpool, to accompany an exhibition of his photographs at the Liverpool Museum Conservation Centre in 2007.

He currently teaches classes at Palos Verdes Art Center.
