                      ....    With a cosmopolitan background that straddles art, sculpture, contemporary furniture and cutting edge design, and an entrepreneurial drive that has seen him build separate businesses both in London and New York, TP Hardisty has forged an exciting reputation as an international artist synonymous with the innovative use of colour, structure and reinvention.

Bold, provocative and stimulating, TP Hardisty's core tenet of creatively reinventing the everyday has seen him quickly establish himself as one of the UK's most intriguing emerging talents, the pioneer of an expression that provides strong and compelling new perspectives to the obscure and the unseen, via the abstract transformation of everyday objects and observations.

Recent exhibitions include, London Art Fair, Art Miami, Art Palm Beach, Art Wynwood, Art Monaco as well as Art Southampton in New York.

TP Hardisty works in the UK and Switzerland. His work is in private collections and institutions across the globe, including the UK, USA, France, Switzerland, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Germany, Sweden, Lebanon and the Philippines.
