OUT OF THIS WORLD

Hugh Oliveiro

'OUT OF THIS WORLD' is a body of work especially created celebrating fantastic cosmic themes. Using mixed media Hugh creates paintings, objects, and wearable art. Inspiration is derived from ancient cultures, history, myths and legends, music, and more.

Oliveiro’s inspiration stems from a rich and diverse cultural heritage. The colourful life style against an exotic backdrop contributed indelibly to a critical eye and enquiring mind of a child growing up in Singapore in the 1950s and 1960s.

There is a theatrical, magical sense to his vision, unrestricted by particular schools of thought, style or method yet adopting both eastern and western principles. Always aspiring to beauty, it is unashamedly rejoiced in his work. At first sight the visual effect is paramount, holding the key to engage with the art further, in the end the integrity of the piece always speaks for itself.
