Hashim Akib – Born 1967 England

I am inspired by everyday images around me. Recently I painted a series of paintings in various cities including London.
Working as an illustrator for over 15 years has provided valuable experience in developing a backbone of drawing, conceptual ideas and painting techniques. My client list varies from The Times newspapers, Daily Express, Daily Mail, Time magazine, ad campaign for Smirnoff, a stamp for Royal Mail and concepts for a product range for W.H.Smith.

. Throughout his career Akib has won many awards; including in 2009 the SAA (Society of All Artists) Artist of the Year, having won the Professional title in 2005 and 2007.

Runs regular demonstrations and workshops throughout the country.
