Born in 1955 and raised in Cambridge, Louis Hawkins worked for many years as an artistic producer for a number of organisations including the Bath Fringe Festival, Guildhall Arts Centre, Gloucester and Jacksons Lane Arts Centre, London before taking the decision to become a full time creative artist himself. His work now ranges across a number of disciplines including painting, film-making and poetry. As a painter his work is influenced by Mark Rothko, Gerhard Richter, Nicolas da Stael, Emil Nolde and the St Ives artists Patrick Heron and Roger Hilton. His work aims to detail visual memories and in particular the abstracted forms, textures and colour themes of dreams and the subconsious. He also draws on cartographic images and forms to explore the planes and densities of elevation and altitude. He is based at Widcombe Studios in Bath, England where he experiments with the vocabularies of texture and colour using acrylic, gouache and watercolour. His paintings have widely exhibited in galleries and private collections in London and the West Country.
