about, artists, Daniel Hughes

In the stairwell of Gallery One sits Red Faced (2014), an artwork by ECA graduate Daniel Hughes. The University purchased the piece in 2014 following his degree show, adding to its ever-expanding contemporary collection.

Since 2012, Hughes has participated in both group and solo exhibitions from London to New York. In both 2013 and 14 his work was exhibited at two shows, Exhibition A and Primo, at The Number Shop in Edinburgh. He has most recently exhibited at the group show, £3672.96 at the Copeland Gallery, London.

Hughes’ work touches upon themes of; self image and subverted identity, relationships with both visual and written language, negotiations between urban and social environment and class conflict.
