John Hudson, a Los Angeles based painter, grew up around influential New York artists and was introduced to the art world at a young age. While pursuing a degree in art, he had the privilege to work as an assistant to several significant artists. During this time he gained a great deal of knowledge of different media, techniques, and creative processes, while at the same time finding his passion to express himself through the process of making art.
Hudson's path out of art school led him to tackle art direction for ad agencies and television networks within the fine art esthetics he embraces. As a successful art director and the creative director for a major television network, Hudson was awarded five Emmy’s and numerous design awards. During those years he continued working on his paintings and personal creative projects never losing sight of his desire to dedicate himself to working full-time as a painter as he has accomplished doing so this past year.
