Kerry Hallam Bio

The act of creating a painting can be compared to a journey that begins with the imagination of the artist and evolves into a dialogue between artist and viewer. Each artist travels this solitary journey carrying only his vision, talent, and commitment.

Kerry Hallam’s personal journey as an artist began as a young boy growing up in the cold grays of industrial Northern England during the recuperative period following World War II. Surrounded by soot, industry, cold and poverty, he dreamed of warmer, brighter places where the sun was not a stranger. This thirst for both geographic and artistic exploration led him to Hong Kong, Malaya, India, the Middle East as well as Germany, Holland, Belgium, Denmark and Sweden. Each of these places fed the mind of the artist in him, but it was to be the South of France finally that fed his soul. The energy of Southern France seduced him with its romance and intensity. This potent, life-affirming environment determined the direction his art would follow.

Hallam currently lives and paints on Nantucket Island off the coast of New England ; her the only grays come in the form of thick fog rolling in from the Atlantic Ocean and the weathered cedar shingles of his studio and cottage. How he traveled from a day-dreaming boy to a world-famous artist is a story filled with twisting paths through cities and countrysides, haunted by the inspiration of great artists who had traveled similar paths.

Born with the somewhat vague ability which allows the hand to translate the mind’s eye, Hallam honed his talent and progressed from a gifted lad to an accomplished artist. Part of this journey involved earning a much-coveted admission and scholarship to London University. During his six years there, he was introduced to many of the great masters that form the basis of formal art education. Hallam was strongly influenced by both the scope of their work and their integrity of purpose. His professors included contemporary British master painters Leslie Cole, Patrick Heron and Hans Tisdale. They guided the youthful Hallam along a disciplined and thoughtful course of study and hard work.
