Peter Haslam Fox was born in Lancashire in 1978. He went to school in Yorkshire and on to Chelsea School of Art. Disillusioned by the conceptual focus, he moved on to read Art History at Glasgow University. As his Master’s subject, he specialized in abstract expressionism and perhaps more importantly for his future development, Chinese landscape painting.
A variety of art and craft based jobs followed, latterly working as a carpenter and gilder in London and Washington D.C. In 2005, inspired by a meeting with the artist Brendan Kelly, Haslam Fox spent a year at London’s Art Academy under his guidance. Here he met a group of artists he looked up to and soon his love of painting found a new direction.
A foray into watercolour in 2007 soon developed into a consuming obsession and he has since won recognition for his unusual approach to the medium, notably winning the 2008 Sunday Times & Royal Watercolour Society Young Artist Award. Others key works were exhibited at the ‘2008 Discerning Eye Exhibition‘ at the Mall Galleries and the 2009 21st Century Watercolour Exhibition at The Bankside Gallery.
In 2009, Peter Haslam Fox launched Art Work Space with his critically acclaimed first solo show ‘A Tale of Two Towers’. Since then he has continued to push the medium, culminating in ‘White’ at Jonathan Cooper in 2013, where his delicate approach brought together his enduring loves of Eastern technique and Western boldness.
In 2010, Peter Haslam Fox won the Benton Purchase Prize at the ‘Discerning Eye’ and his portrait of his mother was shown at the 2011 Royal Watercolour Society Spring Exhibition.
More recently Peter Haslam Fox has enjoyed success at both Art Toronto and a specially curated Watercolour exhibition at Winsor and Newton’s Griffin Gallery.
