Oliver Hilton has always related to the world around him in an incredibly visual way. Painting and drawing became a passion of his from a very early age and continues to be an integral part of his life.
The influence of Hiltonâ€™s surroundings in East Anglia are evident in his work, taking inspiration from the Fens with their flat coastal plains and large open skies. The artistâ€™s paintings are abstract but with definite reference to the landscapes and seascapes he lives amongst. Hilton creates impressive large canvases, working with a variety of medium including oil, acrylic, wax, pencil and pen. His work is very atmospheric, tranquil yet energetic. His colour palette too is a contradiction; he chooses soft, muted, delicate tones yet injects the canvas with pops of dramatic colour and an indefinable edge.
Hilton studied at Newcastle School of Art & Design. His paintings are in collections worldwide, and his list of commission is impressive.
