Philip Oliver Hale, born in 1963, is an American Figurative painter who currently resides in London, England.
Prior to turning to fine arts he worked as an illustrator, doing mostly figurative work. He studied under Rick Berry and alongside with Jon Foster.
His current work focuses on figure as well, in depictions of slightly surreal scenes with strange characters performing various physical feats, usually in a confrontation of some sort. He seems to take keen interest in tension and emphasis of angular and dynamic aspects of the figure, almost always incorporating slight anatomical distortions to great effect.
