Dean Hughes was born in Manchester in 1974 and studied at Chelsea College of Art & Design, London. Hughes works with a range of ordinary, familiar, objects such as paper, rolls of masking tape, and bus tickets. Through his small interventions, the banal materials and rituals of daily life become charged with meaning. Recent exhibitions include Contemporary British Drawings, Sandra Gering Gallery, New York (1997), A to Z,The Approach, London (1998), and Go Away, Royal College of Art, London (1999). Dean Hughes lives and works in Manchester.
