Blake Hughes

Short Bio: Painter, drawer, and Columbus implant with a strong love of color and abstraction.

Art Interest: Painting, drawing

Full Bio: BFA Alumni of Marshall University, Blake is a WV native but spent most summers in Columbus as a kid visiting family. Those visits always gave him a fondness for the city and after being the first in his family to obtain a college degree decided to move here. Since moving here Blake has worked in textile screen printing, graphic design for the CLLC at OSU, IT support, and for the past five years as a programmer.
However after years in the tech space Blake has decided to refocus and recommit to his art and is actively pursuing local opportunities and to connect with local artists. His art tends to be more abstract, drawing heavily from Cubism and Fauvism, but traditional representation makes up a large portion of his early work and something he returns too regularly.
