Alex Hanna is an artist and part-time teacher of art who studied painting at Sunderland Polytechnic. His work has been seen in group and solo exhibitions in the UK including those of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, the Lynn Painter Stainers Prize and the BP Portrait Award exhibition in 1998 and 2010.

The portrait is of the artist’s son, who was persuaded to pose for a series of evening sittings. Hanna says: ‘I wanted the portrait to be an objective image of a boy. The profile view helps to emphasise this objectivity.’
