Kerry Hallam is a world-renowned expressionist artist. He is known for his bold use of color and vibrant paintings. Hallam is originally from the north of England. He showed early artistic talent and won a scholarship to study at London University’s Central College of Art. He went on to receive a formal art education under British master painters. Britain’s Royal Society of Artists in Watercolor then invited Hallam to be part of them.
As a young artist, Hallam was heavily influenced by the energy and passion of Southern France. Specifically, France was known to be the birthplace of many master artists, which had a profound impact on Hallam’s work. He used the Fauvist movement as a departure point and combined their brilliant, exuberant colors with the intimacy of the Impressionists. As a result, this combination creates his own unique style, which is both vibrant and expressive.
After spending five years as a musical performer working alongside renowned artists like James Taylor and Linda Ronstadt during the late 1960s and early 1970s, Hallam’s artistic career flourished. He later moved to New England and fully devoted himself to painting. Over the years, he has lived and painted in various parts of the United States. Recently, Kerry Hallam has made Martha’s Vineyard his permanent residence.
Throughout his career, galleries around the world honored Hallam. Galleries have shown his work in international cities such as Paris, London, Tokyo, New York, Beverly Hills, Hong Kong, and San Francisco. His work has been featured in numerous newspaper and magazine articles as well as in PBS television specials.
