Cannon Hudson

Cannon Hudson, the son of two prominent bay-area artists, grew up in the artistic community of Stinson Beach in the Sixties. From a young age he observed and participated in every facet of the diverse artistic practices of his parents and their peers. In his teens he assisted the artist Mark di Suvero with sculptural projects, and went on to study painting at California Institute of the Arts and shortly thereafter began exhibiting his paintings at art galleries around Los Angeles. He was awarded a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship in 2003.

His solo exhibitions include Cannon Hudson, Recent Works, Las Cienegas Projects, Los Angeles, 2010, Cannon Hudson, Chris Wilder, Los Angeles, 2006, and Cannon Hudson, Oliver Kamm, New York, 2004. He has also participated in numerous group shows such as Natural Geographic, Norma Desmond Productions, Los Angeles, 2007, The Painted World, PS1, New York, 2005, and Out of Site, New Museum, New York, 2002.

In 2001 Cannon returned to Los Angeles and established an office and studio there, then subsequently built a studio/workshop in Joshua Tree in order to expand furniture production.
