Bo HILTON

Bo HILTON
1961

An artist son (one of two) of famed British artists Roger HILTON and his wife Rose HILTON (nee Phipps), Bo is an accomplished painter in his own right. He is the brother of Fergus HILTON, also an artist and poet.  Bo has risen to the challenge of creating his own unique career as an artist. His work has been exhibited at the Rainyday Gallery, Penzance and other local venues, as well as nationally.

For a short period in recent years he teamed up with a friend, Murray Lachlan Young, to open an attractive modern gallery on Chapel Street, Penzance, called the Hilton-Young Gallery, but the life of a gallery owner and shopkeeper was not one to be sustained for long, for two such creative people.
