Ernest Boyce Uden (1911-1986) was a painter, commercial artist and teacher, born in London. He was the son of a commercial artist confusingly named Ernest Uden, (1879-1940). He studied at Camberwell School of Arts & Crafts and Goldsmiths' College, and began exhibiting his work during the 1930’s. Uden became a successful commercial artist and illustrator and during World War II he was appointed an Official War Artist with the Fire Service and was thus a Fireman Artist. When the war broke out, he joined the Auxiliary Fire Service in London and was on duty during the air raids on the East End and Docks.
Uden was part of the contingent wetting down St Paul’s Cathedral when it was surrounded by fire. After the War, he was commissioned to produce work for a number of well-known companies, including British Gas, Daimler, Bass, Dunlop, Ferguson Tractors, ICI and the Radio Times. He also taught at Reigate School of Art where he became Head of Graphic Design. Uden exhibited at RA, RI, NEAC and abroad. Examples of his work are in the collection of Brighton & Hove Art Gallery, Herbert Art Gallery and the IWM. Some authorities give his first name as 'Ernst' and his work is usually signed 'E. Boye Uden'.
