Sam Hewitt is a Brighton based artist. He studied visual and performing art at Brighton University and has been producing art in various forms professionally for the last 20 years. Sam works in oil paint and looks at the human environment, predominantly street scenes, and explores the effects of strong light and dark in the life around him. Often with the light source directly behind the subject, Sam's paintings are graphic representations of human figures. Recently the buildings have faded into the background somewhat or disappeared from the visual plane entirely leaving the shapes of the people to tell their stories which sometimes almost fade away in the intense light. Sam trained under former tutor at Goldsmith's College, Sam Rabin, and exhibits regularly in Brighton.
