Kris Hardy

Kris Hardy for A Shade Wilder

Inspired and fascinated by art and automotive design, British born Kris Hardy has always had some form of ‘oil’ running through his veins.

Despite only being 35, the last ten years have seen Hardy commissioned to create high end, high quality works of art for both residential and commercial clients. With frequent exhibitions, bespoke commissions, plus a seven-year contract with one of the UK's most highly regarded retailers under his belt, this looks to be just the start of Hardy's flourishing career.

A decade since graduating from his MA at the Royal College of Art, Hardy's ultimate love has always been painting. From the fast paced cityscapes and abstract landscapes, to figurative females and photorealistic portraits, it's hard to find a piece of his work that isn't captivating and compelling.

For A Shade Wilder, Hardy has turned his hand to painting on some exquisite torsos. These sensational sculptures are a work of art in their own right, however, Hardy tops off the quirky torsos which are made from polyresin and fibreglass, by painting them in different styles. His whimsical work oozes individuality and brilliance. His vibrant colours and patterns are hand painted onto each particular torso, make these sculptures an incomparable statement piece.
