A Southern Californian native through and through Hugh Schock was enchanted by the cartoons he grew up with like all of us. But what set Hugh apart is using his imagination to draw his own characters. Over time these took shape in the form of stories with his own evolving artistry.
Humour, abstractness and innocence form the cornerstones of Hugh's work. His mediums range from acrylic paint, collage and pen resulting in a paradox of light-heartedness and yet touching issues close to us as a race, self-perception and joy. By incorporating different elements in his pieces Hugh gives the viewers something they can identify with on a personal level, wether it is the line work, his subject matter or the array of colours used.
