Alex Hinge FRSA (b 1970) is a contemporary artist based in Lancashire.
Having sketched from an early age, Alex studied Art & Design at Darlington College of Art and went on to study Advertising at Newcastle College. His career took him to London for 25 years, working in a number of leading ad agencies.
Returning north, Alex developed oil painting techniques from his studio, where he continues to take inspiration from the diverse landscapes and dramatic skies around him.
Alex often works from preliminary sketches and translate the image to canvas using photographs and memory. His style is semi abstract and works deftly with palette knife and brush to create striking, unique works of art.
