BP Portrait Young Artist winner, Ania Hobson, celebrates modern women in her debut London show

About

Rising star of the UK art scene, Ania Hobson will showcase new work at her debut London solo exhibition.  The artist will unveil an exciting collection at The Catto Gallery this September where, in her newest set of paintings, she builds on the contemporary figurative style that won her national acclaim.

Two years ago, Hobson won the Young Artist Prize at the BP Portrait Awards at the National Portrait Gallery with A Portrait of two Female Painters. A striking example of the strong, independent millennial women that feature prominently in her work, her entry was chosen from an initial submission of 2,667 pieces from artists in 88 countries.    

Painting women in workwear and chunky boots – often chosen by the artist herself – her sitters have an insouciant quality that speaks to an era of rising female consciousness.  She strives to avoid perfection, preferring to exaggerate her figures and allowing her emotions and experiences to guide her work.
