Biography

SELECTED EXHIBITIONS

SELECTED COLLECTIONS

Internationally renowned artist, Derek Hare, has over 50 years experience as a landscape and marine artist. He has lived and worked in several different countries and is constantly travelling to many and varied locations throughout the world. Throughout his working life, he has produced paintings for private individuals, companies and also countries, whilst continuing to exhibit regularly.

Born & brought up in South Shields, on the North East coast of England,  the sea has always held a fascination for him. During the 1970s and 80s, time spent in Sweden, Norway, Denmark & Germany introduced many collectors to Derek Hare’s paintings including corporate clients such as Dagens Nyheter, Deutsche Bank, Kreissparkasse and KPMG.

In the 1980s, many paintings, including several specially commissioned works, were purchased by the then ruler of Dubai, HRH Sheikh Maktoum Al Maktoum. These still remain in the family’s collections in UK and abroad.

In 2003, he was asked to produce a series of 30 paintings to be used in promoting the Seychelles as a tourist destination. Many of these images were produced as limited edition prints to be sold only at the top resorts and private islands within the group.

A collection of paintings of India followed, with many images being used by the India Tourist Board, now Incredible India. India still forms a strong influence behind many of the artist’s works and, more recently, images from Laos and Vietnam have added to the range of subject matter.

Many of Derek Hare’s paintings are to be found in image libraries where they are used for merchandising and marketing purposes.

His range of contacts in the art world, including prominent artists and dealers, is often drawn upon by developers, architects and designers wishing to acquire works of art from different sources. Derek Hare has curated several large collections for both residential and corporate clients as well as producing special artworks for hotels and super yachts.

 

Limited and open edition prints of many paintings, produced by fine art publishers, have been available since the 1990s. Images have also been used as book covers and in many publications worldwide.
