Pow, a Scot, studied at Edinburgh College of Art and then the Slade. He was influenced by the Cubists, Braque and Picasso, so much so that he mounted the first exhibition of surrealist art in Britain in 1937 at Edinburgh’s Gladstone’s Land Gallery. He painted murals for the Scottish Pavilion at the Glasgow Exhibition of 1938. He was forced to give up painting through injury in the War.
