Hanham is known for his large scale, brash works and takes the viewer on a journey of discovery into his own world. 

A contemporary realistic action painter, he is influenced and inspired by American modernist painter Jackson Pollock’s  dripping of paint, Picasso’s linear soft forms and his love for travel.
