Samuel Hencher | Berlin
I am an English painter and illustrator, born in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1971 and currently living in Berlin.
My work is done in watercolour or oils depending on the subject. I like to paint both landscapes/cityscapes and figuratively and am more inspired by the light and mood of the subject than the physical element that is used to convey it.I paint very quickly without the aid of photos as reference - using sketches made in situ and memory to achieve a looser, less laboured effect - my aim being to convey a feeling or emotion that the viewer can relate to without worrying too much about the actual subject of the painting.
A collection is arriving in Hope Gallery in August 2019.
