Patrick Hughes is a self-taught artist who developed his signature Reverspective style in his early career, responding to the architectural forms of surrealists such as Rene Magritte and M.C. Escher, as well as monolithic figures in the world of modern and contemporary art. By reversing our conventional sense of perspective, his three-dimensional paintings appear to move along with the viewer and take them on a colourful journey down gallery corridors, around graffitied street corners and along dazzling Venetian canals. In Patrick's own words, 'they come to life when we bring them to life.'

One of the major painters of contemporary British art, Patrick Hughes' work is held in many public collections, including the British Library, the Tate Gallery and The British Academy, London; the Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow; The Deutsche Bibliothek, Frankfurt and the Denver Art Museum. Patrick has exhibited in London and throughout Europe, South East Asia, America and Canada. His publications include Vicious Circles and InfinityUpon the PunMore on OxymoronLeft to Write and Paradoxymoron: Foolish Wisdom in Words and Pictures. The work of the artist has featured in the monograph Perverspective, by John Slyce and most recently in A Newer Perspective, second edition published in 2018 by Flowers Gallery, with articles by Dawn Ades, Martin Kemp, Thomas Papathomas and Patrick Hughes. Patrick Hughes lives and works in London.
