Daniel Hughes | Studio

artists, Daniel Hughes

Before its physical materialisation, Daniel Hughes’ work begins on screen. Layering, collaging and sketching on Photoshop, Hughes uses images and content gathered from his surrounding environment.

His current project, a series called ‘Territorial Pissings’, plays with the displacement of gestural marks the artist has captured on his phone around London. From graffiti tags to paint spilt on roads, he has begun to create abstract paintings that layer and confuse these ‘silent’ gestures.

His work often reflects the silent commands of these urban signs through his use of billboards and fly posting, creating an immediate connection between his work and the urban environment around him.

Below are some shots in Hughes’ virtual studio as this process evolves….
