About Hugo Pondz

Using references from both life and photography, I also Observing my thoughts that inspires what I paint, such as swimming pool or golf scene. These volatile impressions turn into concepts and become a conversation between me and my canvas.
I like to develop dramatic detail through elaborate layers and tightly defined brushwork in order to capture a moment in time.
Thus, my subjects are painted with many layers of intricate brushwork to create contemplative scenes of reality.

For any inquiries please feel free to email me through my website and I will answer within 24H :)

Hugo Pondz, is a regular visitor to New York in his dreams and is interested in both the urban landscape of the city and places empty and forgotten. The caracters are waiting or dreaming and maybe both .

of places in which the time stands still in waiting,....
In terms of important influences, he admires the work of the American artist Edward Hopper and Giorgio de Chirico. Stephen Jared. Los Angeles.
