Tom Hammick is an artist living in the UK who works primarily as a painter and printmaker. He is also a Senior Lecturer in Fine Art Painting and Printmaking at The University of Brighton. When constructing his pieces, he shares his time between making prints with his team in his London Studio and painting at his home in East Sussex.
He enjoys working with woodcut prints, remarking that there is a liberation with the finality of a mark made on the plate. Hammick's manipulation of the print medium is impressive and unique; he 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.
