Hugo Frones was born in Uruguay in 1950 and immigrated to Canada in 1975. He is a self-taught artist living in Toronto. His work has been shown in Canada and abroad, in Spain, Uruguay, Argentina and San Francisco. Hugo has been working from the late 80's to the present under the influence of abstract expressionism, and despite a complex of formal relationships in his work, the overall tone and scale of his paintings is intuitive rather than cerebral and organized. Hugo works with acrylic paint on canvas and is very fond of warm colours, Mediterranean atmosphere, and spontaneous and intuitive brushstrokes of bold paint that gives the work its final touch.
