Simon Ogden

Simon Ogden was born in the UK and graduated from Birmingham Polytechnic with a first class honours degree in sculpture to then later graduate from the Royal College of Art with a Masters in Painting. Simon moved to Christchurch in the 80ies and teaches Fine Arts in painting and sculpture.

His recent rug collection contains references to floral linoleums of British textile and wallpaper designer William Morris. Simon’s practice is driven by an interest for the debate about the definition and function of the decorative in the fine arts.
