Paul Hughes (B. 1966 Dublin, Ireland)
Paul was born and raised in Dublin. He works out of his studio, an old pig barn on Frascati Park in Dublin. It gives him the space and opportunity he craves to develop a continuous flow of new abstract landscapes. Paul has been painting for over 20 years. Over this time he has built up a very loyal following. It is only in the last 5 or 6 years though that he has publicly exhibited his work.
In 2007 The Tramyard Gallery in Dalkey in Dublin held the first solo showing (‘Ten Paintings’) of Paul’s work. In January 2009 Paul was invited by the DDDA to hold the first showing of his ‘Absorption’ / Horizon series of work. This exhibition, called ‘Do You Ever Get There’, was a great success and lead to his first solo show in London in June 2009 at the King’s Road Gallery. This show was called ‘Between Two Worlds’.
Paul is also proactive with charities such as Frontline Human Rights Defenders, Sea Change Micro Financing, John Hartnett Stroke Fund and Blackrock Hospice.
Paul Hughes is represented in London by Tanya Baxter of the Kings Road Gallery.
