Henry Hudson’s work offers a humorous metaphysical enquiry into human behaviour and endeavour. Employing a diverse range of mediums — including plasticine, painting, sculpture, ceramics, and drawing — he examines a wide range of themes, from exploring social stereotypes to satirising the madness of contemporary life.
Hudson was born in 1982 in Bath, England. He studied at Chelsea School of Art, London from 2001 – 2002, received a BA in 2005 from Saint Martin’s School of Art, London.
