|Gerard Hanson |||Biography |||Info|
I am an Artist and lecturer who studied in London at Central St martins and Wimbledon School of Art gaining a Masters in Fine Art Printmaking. I have exhibited Internationally with my work in public and private collections.
Work includes a series of portraits exploring Caribbean hair, Style and Pose linked to a colonial legacy. The work portrays its subject through hair-straightening, weaves and wigs from the Jamaican ‘Street Salon’.The result is both a celebration and a critique of personal image.
My recent focus looks at black british music culture, represented through some of the people involved.
