Ranging from guerilla style art to room sized installations; Hudson draws on a variety of influences from pop culture to the French Revolution. Hudson creates images known for their sardonic social and political content offset by bold color schemes.

His paintings have been exhibited throughout the US and Japan and his client list includes Chocolate Industries, Stussy, Syndrome, 2K, Burton Snowboards and Gravis. He also produces a small clothing line by the name of Headlock. His personal work has resulted in two large-scale commissions from the City of Chicago for works such as pencil drawings and found object installations.

Save my Life focuses on every aspect of Hudson’s prolific career, including painting, printmaking and sculptural installation.

In 2007 he had his first solo museum show titled “There Ain’t No Bottomless Pit Here, This is Fucking Magic Man, and Were All a Part of it Together” at the Museum of Contemporary Art - Chicago (MCA).
