Edward John Hughes (1913-2007) was a Canadian artist whose paintings are best known for their strong and appealing images of the landscape and seascape of British Columbia. His distinctive style of painting is marked by the use of flattened space, skewed perspective and simplified shapes. The paintings combine compelling clarity with a sense of the unknown and an appreciation for natural surroundings.
