The work of renowned painter and sculptor Gary Hume is characterised by his invigorating combinations of coloured gloss. In his first major monograph the artist’s rich, affecting work is granted new life in over 200 full-colour illustrations. Using imagery as diverse as polar bears, snowmen and supermodels, Hume turns ephemera into portraits and abstract landscapes – the paintings are simplistic yet engaging and blend a charming naivety with a highly sophisticated grasp of the colour wheel, all of which cements Hume’s position as one of Britain’s most celebrated contemporary artists.
