b. 1962, UK
Lives and works between London and New York
Hume is known for figurative and abstract paintings on aluminium panels, which often feature startling colour combinations made with paints purchased premixed from a hardware store. He represented Britain at the Venice Biennale in 1999 and the Bienal de São Paulo in 1996, the same year he was nominated for the Turner Prize. His work was the subject of a one-person exhibition at Whitechapel Art Gallery, London, in 1999, and in 2001 he was elected to the Royal Academy. Monographic shows of Hume's work were organised at the Kestnergesellschaft, Hanover, Germany and the Kunsthaus Bregenz, Austria, in 2004. Modern Art Oxford mounted a survey show of his Door paintings in 2008. In 2013, Tate Britain presented a focused survey spanning Hume’s career. Since then, numerous gallery exhibitions have taken place as well as installations of public art projects and participation in museum shows worldwide. Exhibitions of new work will open in Berlin and Los Angeles in 2019.
