    Born in Kent, England, and educated at Goldsmith’s College in London, Gary Hume emerged as a leading figure among the young artists working in London in the 1990s. He currently lives and works in London and Accord, New York. Hume is known for his figurative and abstract paintings on aluminum panels, which often feature startling color combinations made with paints purchased premixed from the hardware store. He represented Britain at the Venice Biennale in 1999 and the Bienal de São Paulo in 1996, the same year in which he was nominated for the Turner Prize.
