Henry Hudson (Born 1982, England) completed his studies in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins in 2005 and since then has had several solo and group exhibitions both in London as well as in Milan, New York and most recently Beijing. His work has explored themes from Britishness to self-portraiture, and most notably the study of William Hogarth’s two renowned series of social satire and morality ‘The Rake’s Progress’ and ‘The Harlot’s Progress’. His contemporary take on the historical and traditional can also be seen through his eschewing of oil paint for the use of plasticine on board, whilst he has been described by art critic Richard Dorment as an ‘extraordinary young painter’. He lives and works in London.
