The University of Gibraltar is honoured to host Christian Hook as part of its Beacon Lecture Series.
The Beacon Lecture Series brings Gibraltarians of the highest calibre from the worlds of academia, business, the arts and civil society to our campus to share their thoughts, ideas and experiences.
Lighthouses are beacons of light, which by their activity and prominence serve to illuminate their surroundings. There are individuals in our society who are beacons too, who have achieved distinction in lands beyond our Rock, where they continue to serve as sources of inspiration and motivation for our community.
Christian was named as Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year 2014. He studied illustration at Middlesex University, London before establishing a career as an illustrator for Disney and later lecturing in illustration at the Royal College of Art.
