Des Hughes

Des Hughes (born 1970) is a British artist who lives and works in London and Herefordshire.

He completed an MA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, London in 2002, following a BA in Fine Art at Bath College of Art in 1994.

Hughes’ sculptural practice engages with traditional sculptural materials in new and inventive ways: mixing bronze with organic material for instance. He is also fascinated by the strangeness of British art, whether it be primitive art, strange craft objects or the reinvention of landscape, still life in British Surrealism and modernist British sculptural history. He has guest curated an exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery and has been longlisted for the Fourth Plinth, Trafalgar Square, London.
