Brent Hixon Art


Born in 1961, I was inspired from a young age by the artwork of my Grandfather, a railway artist that often exhibited in London. 

My interest in art lead me to study at Southampton Art College in the late seventies. I have also studied at Norfolk painting school. 

After moving to North Wales in 2001, I was lucky to work under Maurice Cockerill RCA and was also able to gain valuable experience while using the studio of artist/modernist Darren Fraser

I have now, due to an increase in sales, set up my own studio space in Bersham, Wrexham.

I typically paint in oil with and have a strong passion for pallet knife painting. 

Artists who inspire me include: Kyffin Williams, Geoffrey Key, Van Gogh, and German artist Otto Dix.


More Paintings Sold At Wilson55

Following the success at Halls I have sold another two paintings at Wilson55 in Nantwich.

Selling my artwork at Auction has been an exciting experience. It is nice to be able to watch the bids come live and makes for an interesting change from selling in galleries and privately. 

I hope to sell more of my Artworks at auction in the future. The experience has lead to my art gaining more followers and have had a number of very encouraging comments.
