About Hercules Fisherman

“Hercules Fisherman is a veteran (but never “established” or “formula” — always progressing and innovatory!) independent renaissance polymath of many parts.  Multimedia visual artist, exhibition and event originator and presenter, publisher and technologist.  All-around and adventurous creator and entrepreneur.  While also advisor and consultant in these and other fields.  As well as being active and diversifying, Fisherman’s track record has been and still is well covered and documented. “

Douglas Park

Hercules Fisherman recently returned from his Far East tour, where he was invited to work and exhibit a series of sensual paintings produced, in Thailand and Japan. These works strongly influenced by classic Japanese and Eastern techniques with a modern touch.

Hercules is an award-winning artist, publisher, technologist and serial entrepreneur. He has a keen interest in Sumi paintings and a fascination with Zen-Kanji calligraphy, experimenting with fluid nature of the medium, where magical and shimmering hues result from the application of Sumi brushes and inks on rice papers. A selection of his recent work was on exhibit for the first time in Japan at the inaugural opening of Shin Star Gallery. 

Hercules has built a reputation for a strong body of work over the years that include painting, sculpture, installation and performance art. He has exhibited at international art centres and events in countries and private collections around the world.

His work has gained recognition in UK newspapers and magazines including The Face, The Guardian, Sunday Times, ID and Harpers & Queen, to name a few. He has been on TV and featured in films such as London Kills Me by Hanif Kureishi. Hercules has also launched popular clubs and events including Our Wonderful Culture hosting celebrities like Vivienne Westwood, and interviews with Lucian Freud, Leigh Bowery, Richard Hamilton, Yoko Ono, and Gilbert and George.

Hercules has held artist residencies at De Fabrik, Netherlands, The Fridge London, Paradise Wild Life Park, Shin Star Gallery - Thailand and Japan.

Hercules is a passionate protagonist for the advancement of culture, high-tech and social change, and widely recognised for mentoring high-tech start-ups. He recently participated in a major Human Rights fundraising event held at the United Nations in Geneva along with Daniel Barenboim and others, promoting peace and principals for the Universal Rights Declaration.

He is NED, Tech and Innovation Consultant at various startup and educational institutes, accelerators and academics in and outside the UK.

A regular speaker and participants at international art and tech events widely travelled across the world with international connections in every continent.

Drink 'N' Draw 20.03.16

We are very pleased to announce that we will be continuing our exciting new life drawing classes at The Square Gallery London, taking place on alternating Mondays between 7 and 9pm.

Classes are to be hosted by Morgane Wagner and Corie Denby McGowan, and will begin with a warm up of drawing games before moving the focus on to our life model for the evening.

Taking inspiration from the likes of Egon Schiele and Chris Ofili, these will be ‘Drink ‘n’ Draw’ sessions; we will provide several beverages, with participants receiving one on arrival, thereafter making a donation per glass. For those of us less inclined toward Bacchic inspiration for the benefit of our artistic production, there will also be a non-alcoholic option.

Tickets can be bought online here and are priced at £15 for adults and £12 for students. Places are limited so we recommend booking soon.

Participants are advised to bring their own materials; however, for an extra cost we can provide pencils, charcoal and paper.

If the strenuous concentration required of a life drawing class makes you hungry, then you’ll be pleased to know that attendees are entitled to 25% off the food bill at the Queenswood restaurant over the road in Battersea Square.

The Sacred 419

The Sacred 419

The Sacred 419 (aka Sacred Screen x Hotel 419) is a collaborative project between Jonny Tanna and Morgane Wagner (The Square Gallery London). 

Following on their previous shows (Hotel 419 and The Sacred Screen, respectively), an idea was born to follow on from the collaborative aspect of each show and configure the ideas to repurpose both shows as an artistic collaboration, inspired by the Condo Complex project.

With a relation to the transient connection of online friendships and the effect it has on this current generation, contributing artists have never met face to face, yet have formed bonds and projects separate to the show, which enabled this collaborative project to take place.

Themes of addiction, obsession and cyber crime are at the core of the pieces and indirectly translate the unconcious means that formed the relationships.

Guests include: Marie Aimee, Amanda Ali, Miro Arva, Jon Arbuckle, Gala Bell, David Blandy, Parker Day, Ed Fornieles, Super Bro Force, Roxman Gatt, Connie Harrison, Bob Bicknell-Knight, Corie Denby McGowan, Meeduse, Col Self, Joslyn Willauer and Jeunghae Yim

Opening times:
Private View: 7th Feb 2017 6pm - 9pm

8th - 16th Feb 2017

Open daily  12-6pm
