About

Inspired by David Hockney’s pioneering iPad paintings at his 2012 Royal Academy show, ex-EDP journalist Ken Hurst decided to push his own artistic boundaries.

Armed with only a rubber-tipped stylus and an electronic paint pot, he developed a unique style and, along the way, reinvented post-impressionist pointillism for the 21st century.

Working from lightning compositional sketches made on location and photographic references in the studio, Ken creates land-, town-, and place-scapes as well as the odd portrait.

“It can be a painstaking process that often means working on a tiny portion of the finished work at a magnification of up to 1000%,” he says.
