Syd Barrett as an artist.

Roger Keith 'Syd' Barrett (1946-2006) was born on January 6th 1946. While Roger was still in his infancy, his creative talents became apparent: as a teenager, Roger began to attend extra Saturday morning art classes at Homerton College.
In 1964 Syd enrolled at Camberwell College of Arts in South London. He proved to be a  very talented painter.
In the 70s he withdrew and returned to painting, his first creative love producing large abstract canvasses and impressionistic works taken from still life.
His total disinterest in materialism, had a profound affect on his art: once he had completed a painting, he would often photograph it and destroy the canvas or paint over it.
