'Your Hampshire' with Hendog

Often described as Hampshire's answer to Banksy, Hendog too keeps his identity a closely guarded secret and his artwork generally appears without warning and with no-one spotting the talented artist at work!

He (or maybe she) did however agree to share a little of his life with us in 2023 .......

Q. Where in Hampshire do you live?

A. I live in Winchester.

Q. Where do you like to go on a rainy day?

A.I will either stay at home or hang out in one of Winchester's coffee shops

Q. Where is the best place for a cuppa?

A. Definitely the Cabinet Rooms on Jewry Street, opposite the Theatre Royal

4. What is your favourite walk?

A. I like to climb St. Catherine's Hill for the best view over Winchester. You can even find one of my more recent pieces of artwork up at the top

Q. What do you recommend people do when they visit for the first time?

A. To visit Winchester Cathedral

Q. Where is your favourite spot in Hampshire?

A. City-wise, Winchester is definitely my favourite for the food and drinks culture, but I love to visit the New Forest

Q. How many pieces of your wall art are there in Hampshire?

A. I've painted around 25 'street pieces' - around 18 of them are in Hampshire. My Instagram account is where all of my pieces are on show, but there’s no actual list to my knowledge.

Q. Have you ever been caught by anyone whilst you have been painting any of your street art?

A. I’ve never been caught painting. I've only ever been seen by the few people stumbling around at 3am or so!

Q. Which has been the most difficult of all your pieces to paint?

A. Seaside towns are always difficult. Because there is a lot of salt on the wall surface, it makes it difficult to stick my stencils up.

Q. Is it possible to buy your art?

A. All of my originals are sold through the Reem Gallery in Camberly and my prints are sold through my own website. All information about print releases can be found on my Instagram account.
