Oil Painting. View of Garage, with entrance from Magdala Road, Nottingham. Giles Mitchell (aka Giles Denmark). 1966.

My parents came to Nottingham, from London, in 1955 - I remember arriving in Victoria Station, in Nottingham where you could hardly see anything because of smog. I went to primary school at Mountford House School (closed 2008) in Carrington, Nottingham. Then went onto Nottingham High School (founded in 1513). After that went to Trent Polytechnic and had a foundation there, before getting a Diploma in Fine Art at Trent. (I wanted to go to Leeds, or Falmouth!).
