Lyndon Hayes was born in England in 1975 in the East Midlands and now lives and works as an artist and illustrator in London. Lyndon has a BA in illustration from the University of Brighton and an M.A. in Communication Design from Central Saint Martin’s College.

Lyndon’s style is divided into two parts. The painted pieces that played a key part in his early development as an artist/illustrator & the more fine line pen approach that now forms most of the commission requests. Traditional mark making and reportage has always been at the heart of Lyndon’s methods, injecting a more personal element into the working process.

Lyndon works on a wide range of commercial commissions from large institutions such as English Heritage to more editorial areas such as The Observer Monthly Magazine whilst regularly exhibiting his paintings in London & further afield. He also lectures in illustration at the University of Derby and contributes to the MA online illustration course at Falmouth University.

Previous clients include English Heritage, The Folio Society, Sunday Publishing, The Guardian, Sunday Times, FT, New York Magazine, Le Monde, Royal Mail, Casa Da Abitare, Conde Nast, TimeLife-NYC, GQ/UK, Australia, Japan, France, Oprah Magazine, Mercedes, Wired Magazine, Wallpaper, Pearson Education, Shop Magazine, Evening Standard, Waitrose Food, FHM, Brunswick Review.

Lyndon has also produced several short films in connection with his working practice as an urban outdoor sketcher and his recent experiences on working with English Heritage in connection with a revamp of their visitor’s centre near Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland.
