Hide Profile

Charles Hobson is an American artist who uses pastel, monotype and other printmaking variations to construct images for books and works on paper. He often works in series, follows a historical theme, and employs the monotype as an under painting for further work with pastel, acrylic and printed texts. He began creating artists' books after working on a tribute book for a friend, Bruce Nelson, after his death in 1984. The book contained Nelson's poems in a small letterpress edition. His first artists' book was Supper in Montmartre which came out in 1985.
