s. arden hill
s. arden hill (b, 1974) lives and works in Winnipeg, Canada, where he teaches graphic design to high school students. He grew up riding skateboards, playing kick the can, drawing Garfield comics, and getting lost in the coulee’s of southern Alberta. Hill loves exploring colour and texture through painting, collage, illustration, and book making.
Hill’s work is creatively driven by the contrast of colour and texture. Using a variety of mediums, he creates multi-layered compositions that resemble surfaces touched by age, weather, and decay. Hill’s work should be explored intimately to discover the juxtaposition of organic detail.
Hill has shown in several group shows in Winnipeg (Graffiti Gallery, RAW, Parlour Coffee, Ace Art, Platform); Montreal, QC; Phoenix, AZ; Los Angeles, CA; and Denver, CO. Hill has also performed minimal electronic music internationally as duul_drv.
Hill's illustration has mainly appeared in the Manitoban.
