Aidan Hughes Prague illustration

Aidan Hughes was born on Merseyside, England, and was formally trained by his father. His influences include Golden Age comic artists Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko and Jim Steranko, Russian Constructivism, the Italian Dynamo Futurista, and the work of woodcut artists Frans Masereel and Lynd Ward.

Despite having never attended art school, he began publishing his own comics before embarking on a commercial career, producing illustrations and storyboards for clients such as Warner Bros., the BBC and The London Evening Standard. In the 1980's he began a long-term collaboration with industrial band KMFDM, created BRUTE! pulp magazine, and worked extensively in radio, TV and the media. Aidan's other work includes graphic design, short film making, computer games and animation.
