Tom Hallifax  (b. 1965)

Approach:realist
Tom Hallifax paints figurative work almost exclusively from life. His work ranges from portrait commissions and landscapes to large 'blow-ups' of faces, hands and objects.
1994: Visited LA and Hong Kong with Prince Charles, staying on in Hong Kong to complete a previously commissioned portrait of Chris and Lavender Patten.
He has since painted a portrait of Derek Hill for the Prince, and the garden at Highgrove for the Prince's Trust. His work has been seen all over the underground (advertising the BP Portrait Awards), on television (painting the late John Diamond) and his gurning face looks down from the walls of Paul Smith's shop in Covent Garden. After living in Belfast for seven years, he now divides his time between London and Donegal
