“The Isles of Scilly archipelago and Tresco in particular has been a place of joy and inspiration throughout my career. The clarity and calm of the Island has guided the creation of each individual wallpaper.”
Hugo begins every piece of work by drawing from life with pencil and paper. In each drawing he captures the energy of a given situation, and allows it to take on new life. Each of Hugo’s artworks is an attempt to open up and extend the space of a specific location, both physically and conceptually. In this way he bridges the gap between conceptual and applied art, making tangible the transcendent beauty of life.
Hugo Dalton’s first commission on graduation with First Class honours from Goldsmiths College was for the home of Kay Saatchi. Since then his works have been shown at the Today Art Museum, Beijing, the Carrousel du Louvre, Paris and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. He has collaborated with choreographer Christopher Wheeldon to create a stage set at Sadlers Wells Theatre, London and has permanent works in the Royal Albert Hall, Mercedez-Benz Stadium, Atlanta and Tiffany&Co New York.
