** OFFICIAL SELECTION - CHICAGO IRISH FILM FESTIVAL 2013 **
In this, the fourth in a series of inspiration led mini-films, we spend a few hours in the studio with artist Paul hughes.
As an Australian creative based in Dublin, I have met and been inspired by a number of talented Dublin creatives working across all disciplines in Ireland's capital.
Dublin painter Paul Hughes has been painting for over 20 years and works out of his studio, an old pig barn on Frascati Park in Dublin. Over the years Paul 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 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.
He is represented in London by Tanya Baxter of the Kings Road Gallery.
