Mooring in the Hydra harbour and staring at this Greek village’s scenery alongside Tom Powell.

Born in France in 1987, Tom Powell wasn’t always destined to be a painter. He first worked as acarpenter before becoming a sailor. In 2008, and after 5 years of sailing, Tom moorsin the Hydra harbour, a Greek island located in the south of Athens : this will prove to be a genuine journey back to his roots for Powell, seeing as hi sgrandparents Tony and Simonetta Powell, who wereboth painters, had resided in Hydra throughout the 70’s and 80’s. Tom mainly paints landscapes, as well as still-life paintings and characters .He draws inspiration and energy from light. In his paintings, we find a subtly smooth balance between abstract and figurative, an authentic style that also unveils his commitment to free speech. Beyond the colours, lights and contrasts, Powell is especially interested in the overall harmony of apiece.
