George Hunter

George Hunter is a self-taught artist who lives and works in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. Hunter believes art should leave an impression: whether good or bad, it is the viewer's interpretation that counts. His paintings and drawings -- in acrylics, oils, inks, watercolor, spray paint or pastels -- focus on colours and shapes and how they interact. His Fauvist-influenced colour palette belies his interest in the works of Matisse, Derain, Vlaminck, as well as Van Gogh, Monet, Cézanne and other Impressionists and art historical masters, yet his expressionist, experimental paintings and drawings could be considered a mixture of Naive Art, Remodernist Style and Outsider Art.
