Hughes is an award-winning painter who has been showing his work both internationally, and more recently in NZ, over a lengthy illustration and fine arts career. As a creative, Hughes brings together those early learnings of layering glazes in the style of the old masters, with an eagerness to develop new techniques, exploring colour, union and movement. With the ability to move effortlessly from his love of the human form and all its characteristics and uniqueness, to capturing the intricate details of a breathtaking scene, Hughes ensures the viewer can experience and construct their own personal narrative from his artwork. Gwyn Hughes art draws on a lifetime of experience and creativity, of connections and relationships, of learning and growing, to come together with heart, soul and paint, manipulated on canvas.
