Biography

Austin was born to a London policeman, and showed an artistic streak from an early age, attending evening classes at Lambeth Art School. He later became an apprentice to a stained glass maker (Powell’s of Whitefriars St.)

His later artwork, full of sexual undertones, figures and magical symbols brought him the attention of Aleister Crowley, to which he contributed four small drawings to Crowley’s publication – The Equinox.

During World War I, Austin was conscripted in 1917, serving as a medical orderly of the Royal Army Medical Corps in London hospitals. He was commissioned as an official war artist two years later.
