KERRY HALLAM

"Let the heart be free. Being alive, inhale the air. Feel the ocean breeze. Deep blue of boundless ocean and sky. Sun shines over the coast city. Horizon so wide and endless. Always energetic, always dynamic. Not a hint of solitary life here." Kerry Hallam

Kerry Hallam is as refreshing and spirited as his paintings. He creates enticing images through bold palettes and captivating compositions. Born in Northern England, Hallam showed early artistic talent when he won a six-year scholarship to London University's Central College of Art. After a formal art education under British master painters Leslie Cole, Patrick Heron and Hans Tisdale, he completed his military service in the prestigious Gurkha brigade in Hong Kong and Malaya. Hallam's talent was further acknowledged when he was selected for inclusion in Britain's Royal Society of Artists in Watercolor.

Enthusiasm for his art is fully evident in Kerry Hallam’s vivid, windswept seascapes and timeless, sun-dappled village scenes. Strongly inspired by the Fauves, Hallam has a strong affinity for the 19th century French Post-Impressionists, Cezanne and Van Gogh. In the late 1960s and early ’70s, his artistic career was augmented by five years as a musical performer, working with musicians such as James Taylor and Linda Rondstat. In 1996, a collection of original songs by Kerry Hallam was released on the compact disc, "Autumn Harvest".

In 1973 Kerry moved stateside, settled in New England, and completely dedicated himself to painting. He later established his first studio in Boston, and in 1981 opened a studio and gallery on Nantucket Island. Since then, he has lived and painted in many parts of the United States, most recently settling comfortably again into New England life.

Inspired by St. Tropez and the French Riviera, Hallam returned frequently to renew his spirit. Noted for his power to evoke emotion, opulence of light and distinctive color harmonies, Hallam translates the ordinary moment into the magical, inviting us to be revitalized by the world's simple pleasures. His panoramas continue to draw accolades, including a first place award by the prestigious L’Association Pour le Promotion Artistique Francais. His work is included in collections worldwide, including those of Brigitte Bardot, Bjorn Borg, the Marchioness of Queensbury, Lady Caroline Townsend and the Virginia Heart Institute. His works also grace the permanent residence of Monaco’s Ambassador to the United States in New York City.

Through innumerable one-man shows, Kerry Hallam has been honored by galleries around the world having shown at exhibitions in Paris, London, Tokyo, New York, Beverly Hills, Hong Kong, San Francisco and many additional cities. His work has been featured in countless newspaper and magazine articles as well as in PBS television specials.
