Hilary Bond

Hilary Bond


Hilary Bond was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. She received a BFA from the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art and an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute.

The artist began painting models like Kate Moss in her exploration of the idealized body type in fashion. Citing Andy Warhol, Willem de Kooning, and Egon Schiele as influences, she creates bold depictions of strong women. Her layered color palette and black outlining emphasize female strength and assertiveness. Through these images of women, Bond explores contemporary femininity as well as the concept of the artists’ “muse” and how it relates to female identity and body-positive expression.

Hilary Bond’s work has been exhibited throughout the United States in group and solo exhibitions. Her work has been featured on numerous prominent television shows.
