Throughout August, Whitewater Contemporary presents a new collection of work by award winning painter Ian Hargreaves. As a young artist in the 1970s, Ian travelled Europe, painting places that inspired him, and developing a love of the Mediterranean subjects that have influenced the style and focus of his work ever since.  Today he lives and works in Southwest England, continuing to paint locations in Italy in particular, and turning his skill for rendering light, shade and shimmering warmth to painting towns and beaches on the Cornish coast. This Featured Artist exhibitions includes paintings of Polzeath, Port Isaac and the surrounding area, alongside images inspired by the pretty streets of Venice in Italy, the Algarve and Lisbon in Portugal, and the coast of Greece.

Ian has exhibited his work at the Royal Academy in London, the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and the Royal Society of Marine Artists. His work has been accepted twice for the prestigious Lynn-Painter-Stainer's Prize at the Mall Galleries, and in 2016 he won the Artist of The Year award in London. His work hangs in private and public collections worldwide.
