Currently based in Cape Town, Hugh Byrne is a South African contemporary painter who combines bold color, texture, and geometric planes, illustrating the tensions between geometry and abstractions, structure and dynamism. He investigates hidden shapes and forms that are everywhere around us, lying just below the surface. Hugh Byrne studied Fine Arts at the University of Pretoria, graduating with an honors degree.
