Hugh Byrne is a young upcoming artist who works and lives in Cape Town. The city is where he finds his influence. After gathering images he breaks them down into simplified geometric forms and hard-hitting colours.
The brightly coloured artworks shine and are highly reflective. He uses layers of paints, resins and various coatings to get this effect, which is most effective.
The paintings are effective on their own but are often assembled so that they build and extend on each other until networks of them have spread across the walls.
