The younger of the two artists is 17 years old Callum Parry who is studying fine art as one of his A-Levels at Mosslands School. He hopes take a foundation art degree at college before heading off to university to study either fine art or digital art. He has developed the confidence to use paint and started to study figures, faces and landscapes in the last couple of years but in the last 6 months has been studying portraiture and has come to realise that it is his strongest area in art.
Sam Hunt is currently in his first year studying Fine Art at Leeds Metropolitan University. In studying art at A-Level at Mosslands, he became obsessed with 'making' work in many different ways.
"Since I was about five I have taken an interest in drawing.
I always knew I wanted to become a great artist or work in the arts."
"My love of art was ignited at an early age largely due to the influence of my father, and paternal grandparents who are all accomplished artists themselves. Although their artwork was very traditional it gave me a good grounding in how to draw and paint. As I have matured and understood how to interpret different styles of art I have developed my own unique interpretation of making art, which I feel has expanded my range, and helped me to build an exciting portfolio."
Outside university Sam has been involved in numerous exhibitions including the Heswall Arts Festival and the Rotary Art Exhibition and hopes to exhibit more in the Wirral throughout the year.
