Graham C Harwood

by Natasha Louise · illustrations: Anna Jacobsen

A Hackney Wick resident of ten years, painter Graham C Harwood moved into his current studio in East London before this slightly eerie part of town was ever considered trendy. An explosion of colour and light, walking into Harwood’s space is a delight for all senses with the artist’s paintings making a particularly strong impression. Fascinated by the splendor of nature, science, transformation and memory- Harwood’s love for colour makes a dramatic impression and shows in everything from his large-scale layered oil paintings to his smaller oneoff prints and more intimate watercolour works.
