Visiting Artists: Dean Hughes

Students and staff at would like to thank Dean Hughes for providing an insight into his practice as a contemporary artist. Dean presented and discussed a range of work dating from his early years at Chelsea College of Art & Design in 1993 right up to his most recent body of work which was recently acquired by the Saatchi Gallery.

Dean utalises the language and media of the every day to bring fresh perspective to our often unnoticed daily routines. From the re-embroidery of London bus seats through the re-hydration of waterless puddles to the re-interpretation of the fundamentals of the pre-paperless office using A4 paper, hole punch and staplers he quietly and skillfully intervenes into pre-existing givens.

Dean will be returning to Edinburgh’s Telford College in the new year in his capacity as head of the Intermedia dept at Edinburgh College of Art to talk to HN CAP students about the Intermedia degree programme.
