and raised in Northern England, Kerry Hallam showed early artistic talent
when he won a six year college scholarship to London University. After a
formal art education under British master painters Leslie Cole, Patrick
Heron and Hans Tisdale, he served in the military in Hong Kong and Malaya.
In 1973 he moved to the United States and, after a brief interlude as a musical performer, dedicated himself to painting. He established his first studio in Boston and in 1981 opened a studio and gallery on Nantucket Island where he continues to spend his summers.
Inspired by the Fauves, Hallam's distinctive color harmonies derive from a bright, pure palette. Exuberant brush work and a lively surface pattern created by skillfully modeled patches of color are evidence of the artist's strong affinity for the 19th century Post-Impressionist painters Cezanne and Van Gogh. Hallam reports that his painting is forever a new adventure and a fresh challenge. Hallam's paintings have won many prestigious awards. The artist's panoramas draw accolades and, recently, a first place award by the prestigious Association Pour la Promotion Artistique Francaise. Recognized as an important contemporary artist, he was featured in the October 400 issue of Forbes magazine in 1999. Included in private collections around the world, Hallam has been honored with comprehensive one-man shows in Europe, the United States, and the Far East.
