E.J. Hughes
Edward John Hughes was born in 1913 in North Vancouver, BC. In 1942, during the Second World War, Hughes became one of Canada's official war artists and travelled to England and Alaska. Described by Jack Shadbolt as "the most engaging intuitive painter of the BC landscape since Emily Carr", E.J. Hughes, is an icon of modern-day Canadian art. His characteristic style of realism combined with a vivid, often stark use of colour, has made his imagery unmistakable for more than 60 years. More than mere romantic depiction of nature, his work subtly shows the intervention of man and industry in the landscape. He passed away in 2007.
