Biography from Estate Downsizing Specialists: Harry Hilson (American 1935-2004) was active 1957-2000's working originally in oil on canvas and wood, mixed media and wax painting. In the 1960-70s, he studied the work of G.I.Gurdjieff and Maharish Mahesh Yogi and began to work in sculptural forms in wood, fiberglass, welded steel and concrete with studios in New York, Los Angeles and Aspen.

His work was included in public exhibits at The High Museum, Delgado Museum, Norton Gallery of Art, Butler Institute of American Art, Georgia State Museum and others – and he was collected and commissioned by private citizens and public corporations.

Beginning in 1970 Hilson developed a wool tapestry technique and created commissions for the Hallmark Corp., Crown Center Hotels, Hilton, Motorola and others. He additionally created monumental graphic and banner projects while continuing to work in oil on canvas and paper, wax-painting and wool tapestries and producing early black and white art video projects.
