Artist and teacher, born in London, who gained an honours degree in graphic design from Manchester Polytechnic, 1974–7, with his master’s in illustration from Royal College of Art, 1977–80. Corr won a Leverhulme Travelling Scholarship to America in 1979; Royal College of Art Drawing Prize, 1980; Lloyds Bank Printmaking Scholarship, 1983; and Chelsea Arts Club Graphics Prize, 1984. He taught drawing and printmaking at Central St Martins College from 1982 and held a wide range of visiting lectureships. Driven by an “endless curiosity”, Corr travelled and painted the world from the age of 18, and his work appeared on book-jackets, posters and stamps as well in galleries. Appealing colours, witty subjects and odd perspectives were characteristics.
