Hamish Fulton is an English artist, considered one of the main land British artists. He began to roam the world in the early 70s; his walks are part of his own artistic concept. He has traveled many places combining his trips with photographic images, travel journals, and exhibitions.
He studied sculpture at Saint Martin’s School of Art in London from 1966 to 1968, while fellow artists Jan Dibbets, Gilbert & George, and Richard Long attended the Royal College of Art from 1968 to 1969. Basing his work on long walks lasting a day to several weeks, Fulton records his physical and emotional experience of the landscape through photography with a 35mm camera.
Although his work has been linked with both conceptual art and land art, Fulton considers himself an heir to the British tradition of landscape painting. Since 1969 Fulton has done walks in Argentina, Austria, Australia, Bolivia, Canada, France, Germany, England, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Lapland, Mexico, Nepal, Norway, Netherlands, Portugal, Peru, Scotland, Spain, Switzerland, Tibet, the United States, and Wales, and has shown his work in Europe, the United States, and Latin America.
