Kris Hardy


Kris, who was born and raised in Nottingham, went to the University of Huddersfield at 19. He studied vehicle design there after completing an Art and Design course in college. He obtained a 1st class honours degree in 2000.

He was surrounded and inspired by the very interesting Architecture while growing up in the city. Witnessing the demolition of a dilapidated and aesthetically unappealing old council building exposed him to bold and intricate geometric forms that, visible against the skyline, sparked his current immense talent and celebrated reputation as a cityscape artist.

His soft, romantic, and flowing elements complement the occasionally harsh and monolithic scale and stature of the buildings with perfection. In his work, he uses bold, strong lines and incorporates blocks of tone. These are further enhanced by foliage and organic architecture, drawing inspiration from Urban and Graffiti street art.

His adeptness in blending oils, watercolour, and acrylic contributes seamlessly to his artistic style, resulting in a vivid and cinematic impact on both colour and size.

Kris, whose repertoire is expanding and who is in high demand, has successfully completed numerous commissions for prominent clients including Boris Johnson and British gas.
