Jason Hawkridge is an established multi disciplinarian artist who lives and works in Walthamstow, East London. Full time artist Hawkridge has been intrinsically creative from a young age and found a passion for drawing during his school years, discovering his love of diagrams and geometric shapes which continues in his work today.
Since his early career as a commercial illustrator working for clients such as Nike and Mont Blanc, his monochrome palette in pencil and charcoal has evolved organically to a wider palette of acrylic paint on both canvas and board and large scale wall murals, as can be seen in his site specific projects with world renowned artists Lothar Gotz and Rebecca Salter, amongst others.
His application of colour is often bold and yet his innate understanding of subtlety of tone is evident in the distressed paint finishes he produces creating atmosphere and textural depth.
Hawkridge’s highly successful collaborations with developers and interior designers such as Cuturi Studio, Studio Ashby, Hudson & Mercer and Suzy Nina Interiors have featured in worldwide interiors publications- His cutting edge distressed walls feature in private homes, bars, restaurants and luxury developments across London and the UK.
To produce Art is not so much a choice for Hawkridge but a need to create. Combining his own skill set and his client’s brief has enabled him to work in many varied styles and disciplines providing him with a huge amount of experience in many facets of the creative process from conception to completion.
