Alan Hindle

Alan Hindle was an aviation artist through the 1950s to 1980s. Many considered him to have been an underrated talent. His passion was aircraft, especially biplanes of the 1920s and 1930s, and WW2 aircraft. However, he was often commissioned to paint many “modern” types as well. In his later years he even turned his brushes to painting maritime scenes.

Alan owned and flew a de Havilland DH.82A Tiger Moth, ZS-DNP, and for many years he was particularly good at painting “Tigers”.
