About Luke Hannam
Hannam graduated from Canterbury college of art in the late 1980’s. He won several prestigious drawing prizes, including the "The Chris Alexander drawing prize".
Heavily influenced by the St Ives School and early twentieth century European painting, particularly Matisse and Derain, Hannam was offered an apprenticeship with elderly Scottish impressionist Tom Watt who he worked closely with until Watts death in 1989. He then moved to London in the early 1990’s to become a musician, which became the sole focus of his creative life for the next 10 years. His band Gramme went on to be hugely influential both in the UK and US.
By 2002 Hannam had started painting again and eventually moved to the south coast of England. Immersed in drawing, he gained the respect of many collectors and artists around the world. His work, whilst still heavily influenced by early twentieth century masters, has grown in stature and confidence and is instantly recognizable. Hannam is committed to experimentation whilst remaining firmly rooted in the classical language of drawing.
The artwork comes with a Certification of Authenticity signed by the artist.

I’ve been truly amazed and humbled to see that so many immensely talented artists got inspired by The Mediterranean theme and responded to our first Open Call.
The blossoms, sea salt, a strayed towel laying lazily on a rock, fresh lime on a blue bowl, the Mediterranean is a state of mind, melting the Greek and Roman myths to the French Riviera, the island of Corsica to Lebanese food, olive oil and terracotta roofs. The Mediterranean is a spirit, a golden skin and long afternoon nap, a family dinner, an evening breeze, an anisette.
The collection features 10 artists coming from the USA, Portugal, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and so on. They vary in technique, background and career stage.
I have selected them among over 400 candidates, without knowing who they were nor where they where from, just by falling in love with their art.
You’ll find drawings, paintings, pottery, all united by the Mediterranean vibe.
