‘Curious Human Anatomy’: An exhibition of original artwork by John Hatfield.

6th July – 25th July 2020

John is a self-taught painter. He rejected a formal art education. He spent much of his working life in voluntary work, scattered around the countryside and surfing. 

 In recent years he has studied human anatomy in depth: earning a BSc(Hons) degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture) and a Masters degree in Physiotherapy.

 He was born in Manchester, raised in Telford, and now lives in Teesside: surfing and working as a physiotherapist in the NHS.

 He has exhibited in the North East, Manchester, Ironbridge and London’s Brick Lane; had a residency at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival; was the illustrator for The Acupuncturist magazine; and has illustrated an anatomical text book on traditional Chinese Massage.
