British artist Charlie Billingham (b. 1984, London) lives and works in London. Through a range of subjects usually rooted in history and tradition, Billingham’s practice simultaneously honors and questions painting and its legacy. Accordingly, he looks to personal and shared experiences as a source for his visual concepts. His imagery often derives from satirical prints of the late 18th and early 19th century, now redefined by a 21st century appropriation. He completed his joint honors MA at the University of Edinburgh and Edinburgh College of Art in 2008, and received a postgraduate degree from the Royal Academy Schools, London, in 2013. Recent solo exhibitions include: Hand Gestures, Travesía Cuatro, Guadalajara, Mexico (2021); A Rake’s Progress, SCAD Museum of Art, Savannah, Georgia (2020); Cornucopia, MAZ Museo de Arte de Zapopan, Mexico (2019); A Well Deserved Break, Park House, Dallas, Texas (2019); Desire Path at Travesía Cuatro, Madrid (2017); and Charlie Billingham at Independent Régence presented by Supportico Lopez, Brussels (2017).
