George Hunter

In the far north of England with the suburbs of Newcastle upon Tyne lives the Painter, Sculptor, Poet, Photographer, Author and Musician; namely George Hunter, who creates original contemporary paintings and sculpture.  Yes, that’s me!

Whether I’m painting in acrylics, spray, oils, watercolours; drawing in pastels or inks, or even using mixed media; music is always playing in my headphones.  Sometimes I even listen to my own musical compositions which I call ‘Sound Paintings.’

Although I paint a variety of subjects from landscapes to animals, seascapes to still life and floral to people, I predominately see my art as a combination of shapes and colours hopefully leaving a positive impression on the viewer. Though, as long as the artwork has left any impression then it has done its job.

Soapstone is the main material used in my small sculptural pieces, although occasionally other found materials are incorporated.

Some of my artistic images have been shown as part of joint exhibitions in New York, London, Paris and Hong Kong galleries as well as being displayed (twice) on the sides of New York skyscrapers.

Various painting masters have influenced my artwork such as Van Gogh, Munch, Matisse, Cezanne, Hokusai, Kallela, the Fauvists and Impressionists.
