Virtual Lockdown Exhibition
Harry considers himself a self-taught artist despite attending Maidstone College of Art.
Following an ultimatum by his college lecturers to conform with the institutions style and methods of painting or leave, he ultimately decided to go it alone. Harry went on to carve out a highly successful career as an illustrator and graphic designer with his company Tom Dick and Harry, working with world renowned brands including Dr Martens, Coca Cola and BAE Systems.
"The landscape is almost incidental, my main objectives are to try and capture the atmosphere and 'spirit' of a place. Ultimately it is the mood and light within the
painting which becomes the central theme. As an artist I paint subjects that inspire me, and bring me, and hopefully others pleasure."
Harry’s work is regularly exhibited at the Mall Gallery in London through the NEAC, ROI and the RBA annual exhibitions. He has a full calendar of national and international exhibitions and shows planned for the forthcoming year.
With his total commitment and passion for his art, and the creation of such beautiful pieces it is no surprise that his original paintings now hang in private and corporate collections around the world. Harry is undoubtedly assured of continued success and longevity.
