The sometimes enigmatic and intriguing realities depicted in the exhibited works by Norman Hyams are populated with melancholic but intimate characters. Having graduated from Chelsea College of Art in 2006, Norman shunned the art world for over ten years, creating a powerful body of work unaffected by any external or commercial influences. His intimate paintings are populated with characters depicted in strokes narrowly grotesque and seem to be disconnected from a sense of time and space. His subject matter is seemingly familiar and mundane yet there is always a hidden layer of unease to be explored.
Hyams lives and works in London. His work has been exhibited in London, Antwerp and Florence. He also completed the Turps Painting program in 2016, which takes place in the iconic Aylesbury Estate in South East London.
