Knighton Stephen Hosking (1944 - 2019)


Knighton Stephen Hosking (b. Sidmouth, Devon 1944 - d. 2019) attended Exeter College of Art, 1959–63, then Central School of Art and Design, 1963–6. In 1966 he won a Peter Stuyvesant Foundation Bursary to travel in America. By then Hosking had begun to show in mixed exhibitions, such as Young Britons at Altman Gallery, in New York. He went on to show at John Moores Liverpool Exhibitions in 1978–82–85. In 1968 Hosking began teaching at Wolverhampton Polytechnic and in 1970 had his first solo show there. Another followed in 1974, the year he had a one-man at Serpentine Gallery. Later solo shows included Wolverhampton Art Gallery in 1985. In the mid-1970s Hosking went to live in the country again, settling in Penn Common, Wolverhampton, Staffordshire. The landscape became a key feature of his work; he turned away from working only in the studio and began to use on-location drawings and photographs.
