Derek Ogbourne, born in High Wycombe, studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, London (1983-1989). He has exhibited extensively in the UK and abroad. Exhibitions include What Make You, What Makes You at the South London Gallery, Space International, Valencia, Spain and the Museum of Optography at Sharjah Foundation, UAE. Ogbourne's work is powered by the frenetic and exhilarating ongoing plot of big themes: physical life, death, violence, beauty and the sublime; landscape and vision. Pulsing with the strengths and frailties of what it is like to be human, his obsessive preoccupations result in deeply complex, emotionally engaging artworks. Ogbourne work moves effortlessly across all art forms from performances and video to objects and installations.

Derek is Artist in residence at Hampstead School of Art.

He teaches classes at HSoA: Tuesday 6.30-9.30pm A Painting Workshop, Wednesday 6.30-9.30pm Beginners' Painting and Drawing, Saturday 10am-1pm Drawing and Painting, Saturday 1.30-3.30pm General Art Workshop and Sunday 10.30am-12.30pm Drawing is Wonderful
