(b. 1991, Australia)
Charlie Hudson is an Australian-American artist who lives and works in New York City. Hudson layers playful brushstrokes and geometric forms to produce expressive, dream-like depictions of his surroundings. He approaches his serene rural landscapes and dazzling cityscapes like a master Impressionist, capturing the shifting light and movement of moment spent in each location. His sculptural constructions add new depths of field to each composition, providing the viewer with an immersive glimpse into Hudon’s experience of the world: “The paintings come to represent the feelings of being overwhelmed by the city, inspired by the city, and distracted by the city, ”(Juxtapoz, 2017).
Hudson’s work has been exhibited both nationally in New York, Miami, and Vermont, and internationally in Sydney, London, and Bali. In addition to his famed mural at the Burlington International Airport, Hudon’s public artworks can be found throughout New York City and around the world. During his time with Apostrophe NYC’s Base 12 Project, he participated in exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art, MoMA PS1, Coney Island’s Luna Park, Mana Contemporary, and the MTA’s Kosciuszko Street J train station. He currently shows with Ki Smith Gallery, as well as Soap Box Arts and he has works in several prominent private, public, and corporate collections.
