Jeremy Houghton is a specialist in portraying a variety of sports, and is one of the most collectable British artists of our generation.
An unparalleled history of international commissions has shaped Houghton’s artistic career. Here are just some of his residencies:
2017 Artist in Residence for Ben Ainslie Racing (America’s Cup) 2016 Official Artist for the James Hunt F1 40th Anniversary 2015 Artist in Residence at Goodwood for Lord March 2014 Artist in Residence at Windsor Castle for HM The Queen 2013 Artist in Residence at Highgrove for HRH The Prince of Wales Tour Artist for the Aston Martin Centenary Tour 2012 Official artist for the London 2012 Olympic Games
Houghton’s work is an ongoing study of movement. In addition to sport, he uses themes such as flight, space and time, to depict a broad variety of human endeavours. “As an artist l try to avoid comfort zones, push the boundaries and further perceptual horizons. I have worked with a number of world class athletes in many different fields, all of whom drive themselves to the limit. I hope my paintings capture this human sense of purpose, adding to the legacy of sport and adventure”.
Houghton’s work reinforces the relevance of sporting art in contemporary culture. His visual narratives are conveyed with a depth and empathy often absent in the overcrowded genres of photography. Paintings from his sporting portfolios provide a unique visual narrative that his residencies have used to connect with fans around the world.
