Ian Hughes

Glasgow-born Ian Hughes attended Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee from 1976 to 80. He then won a travel scholarship and spent six months in Amsterdam. Later he moved to Edinburgh where his time was divided between his art work and nursing at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital. His early work involved painting over ready-made photographed images. Recently he has relied more directly on the painted image. His work has appeared in many solo and group exhibitions.
