Hamish Blakely [Biography]

Hamish Blakely

Born: Canterbury
Lives and works: Warwickshire
Education: Kingston University London
Awards: Benson and Hedges Gold Award for Illustration

Out of Work Angels Collection originally formed an exhibition held at Castle Fine Art in Mayfair, London in May 2015.

This display examined Heaven’s creatures in a state of flux, as they descend to Earth having been forsaken by humanity. As the younger generation turn their backs on the Church in increasing numbers, the 24 canvases hung in Mayfair explore the theory that people’s apathy and lack of faith have direct repercussions in Heaven. Our once, eternally loyal guardians find themselves changing and as their identity begins to disintegrate, they urge the viewer to ask: What if they become like us?
Inside the world of Hamish Blakely
Like many great artists, Hamish has a muse. And it is none other than his wife Gail! The artist explains: "We men folk have a lot to learn, and I have learned a great deal from her since we met. My art celebrates that mystifying blend of feminine beauty and strength. While loyal to that enduring genre of the celebrated nude and venerated goddess in art, I also explore the majesty of a woman's presence."

Inside the world of Hamish Blakely.

The artist's love of women has seen him explore themes of empowerment, narcissism and even 'smartphone mania'. Subjects have included angels, courtesans and celebrities but his loyalty remains to the intrinsic beauty of the female form.
