Vibrant, textured, and abstract landscapes convey fleeting moments in Lee Herring’s paintings. His energetic artworks are inspired by everyday moments and memories. In these moments, Herring captures ephemeral spaces in a spontaneous, dream-like landscape.
Herring was born in Sunderland, in north-east England. After excelling in Art throughout his early education, he went on to study Fine Art at the University of Chester where he developed his painting style. Herring graduated with 1st class honors and was awarded the University Prize for his work. Years of dedication to his creative practice has cultivated Herring’s current multimedia style.
Each of Herring’s paintings evolves through a spontaneous process. The conventional paintbrush is abandoned as Herring creates layers of impasto pastel hues using acrylic, markers, neon spray paint, and a glaze of varnish with pallet knives, trowels, and scrapers. The physicality of his work is evident in the visceral nature of his paintings.
Sold out shows and professional collaborations characterize Herring’s international presence. In constant development, Herring’s eyecatching style has been displayed and represented internationally with a strong following of investors, collectors, and reputable galleries.
