Richard Hudson

Richard Hudson was born in 1954 Zimbabwe. He was educated at Wimbeldon Collage of Art. Richard is a set and costume designer. He now has almost 26 years of experience for designing for the entertainment industry.

He is best know for designing the amazing set of Lion King which was an award winning musical that won him the Tony award for Best Scenic and the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding set design, in 1998. He has also designed award winning tv shows, commercials, theatre/opera/ballet/dance performances and many more. He is currently working on a number of different interior design projects.

Originally seen in opera work, Richard Hudson is famous for his bold use of colour and iconography. The idea of 'less is more' and 'I have always pared things down. I'm not keen on excess, no putting things on stage for decorations' is approached in his stage designs.
