Since graduating in Visual Art and Music from Brighton, Sam Hewitt has widely exhibited his paintings in galleries across the UK and collections abroad. He states,”I am working at the interface between my conscious and unconscious mind. Each drops clues for the other to pick up and work. In painting this manifests as a portrayal of part of myself, in two dimensions using characters from the world around me onto whom I have projected my own unconscious motives or those of people close to me”.
Alongside his individual work, Sam is part of the conceptual art collaboration ‘The Fortune Cats,’ producing internationally acclaimed indoor and outdoor installations. In 2011, he was invited to create a three piece commission for Hiscox. In recent years, his work has been showcased at art fairs in London, New York and Singapore.
