Shaun Hackney is a 25 year old self taught, traditional artist based in sunny Manchester. His work has progressed over the last three years to take on a more classical feel with the vast majority of his work being centred around hyper-realistic pencil portraits and figurative pieces. ''I regularly take on commissions and work that is outside of my direct, fine art discipline. A particular interest of mine is Marketing and Graphic design. Applying my creative juices to commercially focused briefs with clear goals and constraints gives an entirely new and exciting experience. Anything from logo design to full brand overhauls, I am happy to help out with. Long term, I am hoping to focus on creative direction and marketing management and am confident that the skills I'm honing now will put me in good stead for the future''
