Leigh Hammett

Leigh Hammett aka OilyBloke

Leigh Hammett is a self-trained artist. He lives and works in the heart of East Anglia, an area known as Constable Country but the vivid imagery and colours used in his works are far removed from Constable’s gentle, restrained landscapes.

As a painter of bespoke portraits, usually of his own design, he has a clear and uncomplicated vision of his subjects, using fresh and vibrant colours and often giving a meaningful twist to well-known images. His styles include themed; formal; informal; highly rendered; or loose oil sketches.

His use of media and materials includes charcoal; pencil; ink; and gold leaf; but his first love is oil paint and his precise knowledge and recreation of the past masters use of materials, enhances and complements his contemporary style of portraiture.
