Hugo has been a Graduate Associate with the Ontario Association of Architects since 1981, and a member of Visual Arts Ontario since 1990.
Hugo’s interest in art began at an early age and it developed into an artistic career by 1979. Various themes are the inspiration for Hugo’s artwork. These include unique interpretations of tropical nature scenes, urban and rural landscapes, landmarks, historical buildings and urban architecture. Hugo’s work ranges from detailed pencil drawings to colour ‘naïve’ paintings in a variety of media, including, ink, feltpen and watercolour or their combination. His pencil rendering of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario commemorating the Centennial of its building, hangs in the Ontario Legislature. Over his 30- year artistic career, Hugo has shown in public, private and solo exhibitions. His work is housed in private and public collections in Argentina, Italy, Belgium, the United States and Canada.
