A Hill to Live On 

 

Siris Hill is pretty much as far removed from the modern artist’s typical journey to acceptance as one could be: spending his childhood struggling with Crohn’s disease, learning to paint in an attempt to cope with the sudden onset of mental health issues that have dogged the Norfolk-born (English) painter and driven him to numerous suicide attempts since the age of 19; being forced to leave his mother’s home and live on the streets and in YMCA hostels because of those issues; gaining acceptance to university at 24 without the necessary (or indeed any) school qualifications. 

 

It sounds borderline filmic, albeit more Ken Loach than Spielberg, but the resulting work is currently in the process of dropping numerous critical jaws as the world wakes up to Hill’s talent.
