John Hoyland

John Hoyland was born in Sheffield, where he studied from 1956-60, continuing at the Royal Academy Schools in 1960. In 1964 he had his first solo show. He has taught in various art schools, becoming principal lecturer at Chelsea School of Art in 1965. During his frequent visits to New York, Hoyland came under the influence of Hans Hofmann, developing an abstract language dependent on the bold use of colour. In 1967 he had an exhibition at the Whitechapel Art Gallery, and in 1979 a retrospective at the Serpentine Gallery. In 1979 he was artist in residence at Melbourne University and in 1980 he selected the Hayward Annual Show. He has exhibited consistently in London as well as in Europe, America and Australia. He was elected RA in 1989.
