George Fullard was born in Sheffield and studied at the Sheffield College of Arts and Crafts. He went on to the Royal College of Art where he later became a lecturer and at the time of his death he was Head of Chelsea School of Art.
During the Second World War he served in the army where he suffered severe injuries. Fullard’s work of the 1950’s mainly focused on the human figure with women being prominent, particularly mothers with young children or babies. However he remained preoccupied with his wartime experiences and this is evident in later drawings and assemblages which explore images and ideas from that traumatic period.
His work can be found in a number of private and Public collections, including the Arts Council and Tate. Several bronze sculptures are on permanent public display in Sheffield City Centre.
