DEX HANNON


Born in 1972 in Manchester, Dex Hannon is an abstract expressionist who moves effortlessly between acrylics, digital, sound, and photography.


Similar to Mark Rothko and Gerhard Richter, Hannon uses music as his main source of inspiration. His art transforms the memories and emotions evoked while listening to music into dynamic and expressive brushstrokes on canvas. Alongside his traditional work, the artist has developed a new approach to digital art developing work for his “Retro Futurism” series, by photographing his paintings during the creative process and then digitally recreating them by combining multiple artworks. The end result is often completely different from the original painting, yet it is still part of it because, without the first, the remix would not exist.


Dex Hannon regularly exhibits in the UK, and in 2020 he was awarded the ‘Best in Show’ prize for the inaugural Art Folio Annual Award. Dex Hannon currently works and lives in Yorkshire, UK.

“We don’t need to follow predetermined rules. We can do what we like. We can have fun. I think that’s my inspiration.

To have fun.” - DEX HANNON
