Latest Love: Shelby Hughes

Shelby Hughes’ (American, b. 1981) playfully colorful works draw you in to beautifully intricate, quite delicate, landscapes. I’m especially enamored with the palette of Shelby’s Inlet Intuit—I’d love to immerse a whole room in the perfect minty hue.

  1. Hi there! This is Shelby– thank you so much for the post on my work!
    The Rothschilde drawing gift was truly a wonderful thing for MOMA and also for the art comminuty that at the time was full of youthful enthusiasm and there was a great push to work hard TOGETHER alongside other artists as well as being open to collaborate on projects together.. (obviously more difficult to sell but, hey, we felt like we were makin our own little mark rejecting the average status quo of the solo artist brand competition
    I’ll definitely start checking our you musings and pics on the regular!

    Cheers, and have a great day!
