Surinder Singh Phull (1956 - 1959)

Surinder Singh Phull was a student at Eastleigh Secondary School from 1956 to 1959. Surinder played for the school hockey team and was also a scout. He was highly gifted in painting and wanted to go to art school. Typical societal views and other factors interfered with the pursuit of this dream at that time. Instead, he trained as a teacher and taught at City Primary School (1962-1975). He was also a very active as scoutmaster and sports coach. Painting, especially East African wildlife subjects remained a passion and he exhibited his art in numerous shows and calendar competitions in Kenya where he won several prizes. He had 3 solo exhibitions in Nairobi. Tourists visiting Kenya from all over the world purchased many of his paintings.

He married in 1972 and immigrated to Manchester, U.K in 1975. He worked for the Post Office for 22 years before retiring due to ill health. He participated in many arts events in the U.K. and had a solo exhibition in Manchester in 1996. He won several prizes, including the prestigious Laing Calendar competition in 1997. One of his paintings is permanently displayed at the KPMG office in Manchester. In 2004, he finally accomplished his life-long ambition of graduating with a BA Honours degree in Fine Arts from Manchester Metropolitan University. Sadly, he passed away very suddenly in 2004. He is survived by his wife, a son in Manchester, a daughter in High Wycombe and a younger brother (also an Eastleigh alumnus) in USA.
