My name is Ken Hunt otherwise known as Lazarus. I have always painted off and on, but in January 1989 I had a serious accident on my Harley Davidson motorcycle which almost proved fatal. As a consequence I was forced to close my existing business to concentrate solely on painting. With help from several artists, namely A.M.E. Bale Prize Winner Chris Browne, and Paul Hunt, I honed my painting skills, and went full-time in 1991. Concentrating initially on portraiture, I also branched out into copying old masters, originally to understand traditional painting techniques- but later in response to public demand.
I used to only paint to order, and not exhibit in art galleries. I have recently begun to exhibit my paintings and have been overwhelmed with the interest, and sales, of my paintings. My commissioned portraits range from army officers to cabinet ministers to children. I have done some film and TV work, the most significant being four paintings for the Lord of the Rings/Fellowship of the Ring.
