Othello De'souza Hartley

Othello De’Souza-Hartley is a London-based mixed media artist who explores aspects of human expression and its suppression in contemporary society.

Applying minimal gestures to maximum effect, De’Souza-Hartley merges personal experience into visual investigations of prevailing quandaries and contradictions. Working predominantly in photography, moving image, drawing, performance, and painting, the human body is at the core of his practice, either directly as a subject or indirectly via the marks and layers applied to canvas.

His work has been exhibited widely to critical acclaim and is held in private and public collections, including Autograph London.

Prior to receiving an MA in Fine Art from Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts London, in 2011, he studied at Central St Martins, University of the Arts London, and at the Royal Drawing School, London.
