London, United Kingdom, February 18, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Kris Hardy artist is to exhibit at Grand Design Live at London Excel 3rd to the 11th of May 2008. In its 4th year, Grand Designs Live boasts over 40000 visitors and Kris will be amongst a staggering 450 exhibitors.
Kris is said to be "very excited to be exhibiting at a national event." Not only will he be showcasing his latest work but he will be demonstrating his canvas art live on the stand. He will be taking questions and demonstrating his skills, all live.
Kris graduated from the University of Huddersfield in June 2000 but he is no stranger to London after completing a 2 year MA at the Royal College of Art between 2000 and 2002. He has been producing contemporary canvas art since graduating and has exhibited work in various exhibitions, show homes, bars and salons around the UK and abroad, working with a number of interior designers to supply art work to them. He also exhibits in over 20 John Lewis departments stores, primarily in London. Through exhibiting at Grand Designs Live, he is hoping to showcase his artwork to a wider audience, different to those of John Lewis and his home town of Hull.
The launch of his website in 2006 has meant he has a travelling portfolio of his past, latest, bespoke and John Lewis work. Incorporating an e-commerce system has enabled his work to be purchased online delivered to anywhere in the world.
His very contemporary approach to his artwork style and attitude to artist - client relations is refreshing. The approach he takes with his work is to produce high quality, original acrylic-on-canvas paintings that complement the client’s interior. All artwork is painted to order by himself and comes in standard sizes depending on the painting format. The refreshing approach is highlighted greatly by his comment "I more than happy to do bespoke sizes and colours, as I believe if you want a piece of art for a specific space then you should not have to compromise."
