Nicholas Hatfull

Nicholas Hatfull (b. 1984, Tokyo, Japan) is a painter of modern life primarily concerned with containers, textures, stains, fabrics and symbols. His paintings are synecdoches and trifles at the same time, a slideshow of impressions slowly fusing into a larger form. Hatfull was the Sainsbury Scholar in Painting and Sculpture at the British School in Rome in 2011-2012, and has been the subject of three exhibitions at Josh Lilley, including the two-person exhibition “Through the Wall” with Victor Willing in 2015.

Nicholas Hatfull lives and works in London.
