Hilton Owen is an Australian artist from Castlemaine, Victoria, whose paintings merge realist, abstract, and figurative styles to create distinctive and evocative representations of modern life, fashion, and imagination. He frequently references photographs and sketches out a composition on each canvas before making numerous changes to the forms, lines, and colours until the finished piece emerges.
Owen’s inspirations are diverse and far-reaching, encompassing various creative disciplines. These include modernist abstraction, figurative painting from the early 20th century, contemporary design, fashion, Art Deco, and individual artists such as Francis Bacon, Bridget Riley, and Carmen Herrera, among others.
Owen is an accomplished painter with 16 solo exhibitions and multiple art prizes. He sold out two solo exhibitions at the ages of 18 and 19 while completing his Fine Arts degree at the University of Tasmania. He obtained an Honours degree in painting from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2019 and was chosen to represent the university in the Nino Sanciolo Art Prize.
