1936

Barrie Briscoe was born in Gloucester but grew up in western Canada. He was educated at Washington State University, the University of Pennsylvania, and Yale. An architect, draughtsman, designer, and occasional painter, he returned to the UK in 1972 and settled in Cornwall a year later.

In the year 2000 Briscoe created a mural on the back wall of the Acorn Theatre facing onto the Greenmarket car park, complementing the interior of the theatre when it re-opened after renovation that year. His idea was to support a competition every year for people to come up with a new design.
