Gladys Nilsson


1940 Born in Chicago, Il
1962 School of the Art Institute of Chicago, IL


As a founder of the Hairy Who, a group of Chicago artists responsible for initiating a funky style known as Chicago Imagism, Nilsson specializes in intensely coloristic watercolors, and often paints satirical narratives that are celebrations of human behavior; revealing characters lived through the eyes and bodies of women.

Nilsson's work has been exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, and the Museum of Modern Art in Chicago among many other nationally recognized institutions.
