Hugh Barnden

Hugh Barnden was born in Oxfordshire in 1946 and educated at the Royal College of Art 1968-1971. Before entering the Royal College, Barnden studied furniture design with John Makepeace. From the mid 1970s he turned exclusively to painting, participating in Eroticism in Fashion at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in 1976, with his first one-man exhibition in Amsterdam in 1978.

Barnden has been represented by Francis Kyle Gallery since 1982, when he took part in the Gallery's winter theme exhibition, We must always turn South. In 1983 he showed paintings and drawings in New York. Besides contributing to the Gallery's theme exhibitions from Tuscan Summer (1985), Venezia Ancora (1987) and Paradise is here: ten painters in Moghul and Rajput India (1989) to South of the Border: nine painters at large in Mexico (1991) and Roma (2003), Hugh Barnden has held nine one-man exhibitions with Francis Kyle Gallery in 1983, 1984, 1986, 1988, 1990, 1992, 1997, 1999 and 2001 (Paintings of Portofino and the Italian Riviera).
