Charles Hannah

Charles Hannah studied art at RMIT in Melbourne and is now a Christchurch-based artist whose artworks draw inspiration from many years traveling, working with animals and enjoying our natural environment. Artworks range from highly detailed drawings of animals in charcoal or graphite on paper, through to large colourful botanical, sky or seascapes in oil on canvas.

With a highly sensitive approach and solid understanding of design concepts, Charles Hannah’s animal artworks blur the lines between quirky pet portraits and rich animal character studies to bring their wonderful personalities to life and to deeply connect with the viewer.

A skillful use of negative space in all artworks beautifully emphasises and captures the feel and sensitivity of a subject – whether it is a cheeky animal, a clear blue sky with autumnal leaves, or a tumultuous indigo seascape.

Artworks reside in private collections in London, Italy, Dubai, India, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand, with commissions, interior design solutions and artworks shipped worldwide.
