Tom Hammick lives and works in the UK, primarily as a painter and printmaker, while also working with the University of Brighton as a Senior Lecturer in Fine Art Painting and Printmaking.
To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the NHS, in partnership with the Imperial Health Charity, Tom created the work Andrej's Cabin. saying, "I thought such an image of romanticised shack-life might, in some small way, conjure patients and hospital staff to hear birds sing, watch the sun go down and the stars come out, and get back to a feeling of wonder conjured up by the natural world."
50% of all proceeds from this work go towards the NHS and the Imperial Health Charity.
Working with woodcut prints is what he loves, remarking that "there is a liberation with the finality of a mark made on the plate." Tom creates a distorted and dream-like world with his surprising yet effective colour pairings and simplistic backdrops. His isolated landscapes, alongside colourful silhouettes, create beautiful and striking compositions that feel surreal and yet eerily familiar.
Tom Hammick's works can be found in private and public collections across the globe, including the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Bibliotheque Nationale de France, Yale Centre for British Art, and the Library of Congress, Washington DC.
