Tom Hammick

Tom Hammick (b. 1963) is a British painter and printmaker whose works are informed by a passion for poetry, opera, film, wonderment for the environment and deepest concerns around climate change. Hammick studied Art History at the University of Manchester and went on to complete a Fine Art painting course in 1987 at Camberwell College of Arts, London. An exchange to Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 1989 shored up his passion for printmaking, which he later consolidated whilst doing an MA in Print from 1990 – 1992. Hammick teaches painting and printmaking at various universities in the UK, including at the University of Brighton. As recipient of multiple awards including the Josef Albers Fellowship and the Jerwood Drawing Prize, as well as residencies at both Glyndebourne and English National Opera, Hammick’s work is found in many public collections in the UK, Europe, North America and China.
