  Artamon Public School, Sydney  2013  The Principal of Artarmon Public School commissioned a series of four murals within the school grounds. This colourful, circular piece pictured is situated in what was a dark, covered courtyard near the water fountains. The aim was obviously to brighten the space for the students, but it has had an added impact in providing a historical context for the school grounds as a whole. The inspiration was the work of French artist Sonia Delaunay who was one of the first avant garde female painters at the very dawn of the Art Deco movement. It seemed a fitting tribute to the school itself which was founded in 1928 - the same time as Delaunay’s dynamic work was in its heyday. (Photograph: Niki Hughes Photography)  The second piece featured here, 'the hopscotch mural', is a new take on one of Hugues' French murals, this time drawing heavily on both the palette and the energy evoked by the graphic abstract. The hopscotch piece breathes new and colourful life into our conception of a classic school yard game, and has proven to be hugely appealing to both children and adults alike.

  Paintings   In addition to his extensive and varied mural work, Hugues is an accomplished painter, working predominantly in oils and acrylics. His signature atmospheric European interiors and urban landscapes draw heavy inspiration from American Realism, a movement of the early 20th Century defined by its focus on everyday social realities, and often associated with American painter Edward Hopper. Hugues makes the style his own with his intense focus on dramatic lighting, and an occasional capricious flourish.  Recently, Hugues was awarded Second Prize in the Painting (Rural Subject and/or Landscape) Class at the 2015 Royal Arts & Crafts Show, for his landscape 'Sandy Hollow'.  A collection of European interiors and Australian landscapes on canvas are available through Marcia Moulton, Director of  Moulton Galleries  in Mosman, Sydney.
