About Arch Hades

Arch Hades is an artist and bestselling poet from London, who became the highest paid living poet in the world in 2021. She is the author of five volumes of poetry – ‘High Tide’ (2018), ‘Fool’s Gold’ (2020), ‘Paper Romance’ (2021), ‘Arcadia’ (2022), '21C Human' (2023)– known best for Romantic lyricism and for exploring poetry-of-philosophy in a traditional, rhyming style. 


In 2021, ‘Arcadia’ was illustrated and sold as a work of digital fine art at Christie’s New York, where it broke records and became the most expensive poem ever sold at $525,000. In May 2022 the ‘Arcadia’ digital film had its museum premiere at the Palazzo Strozzi in Florence as part of the‘Let’s Get Digital’ exhibition.


Arch Hades often writes commentary for national newspapers and magazines on cultural discourse, performs poetry readings, and gives talks on philosophy – speaking about 21C existentialism at Cambridge University and UCL in 2022, and at Oxford University in 2021 and 2023.
