Arthur Hutchinson was born and raised in Auburn, NY to Jamaican parents. He attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY where he received a bachelor's degree in architecture. After working as an architect for 10 years he quit his job to pursue his dream of being an artist. He worked as a security guard at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and began creating art of his own.
He went on to create a body of work using the same tools and methods learned while working at top architectural firms. His beautiful and strange self-portraits served as a roadmap in search of a true identity while his jubilant digital paintings celebrate the freedom that comes with personal discovery.
Most notable are his intricately cut paper relief sculptures which use layers of colored paper to create symbols and imagery that emerge deep from the world within. Now he’s returned to his hometown of Auburn, NY to share what he has learned and inspire others to follow dreams of their own.
