Doug Hyde is a British contemporary artist, born in Bristol in 1972. In 2005, he was named as the UK’s biggest-selling artist, and BBC News described him as the UK’s most popular living artist. His work has the quality of appealing to young and old alike.
His work features adorable childlike characters that inhabit a world of their own. They are warm, funny and uplifting. Doug’s style is instantly recognisable, conveying a wealth of feeling through a deceptively simple style. The engaging smile of his bubble-headed characters has become something of a signature for Doug.
Buy Doug Hyde Limited edition prints
Doug Hyde started by creating paintings for his family in his spare time, branching out from there, initially reluctant to sell his work. His limited edition prints are hugely popular. They're signed by Doug himself, and are available mounted or framed, using the publisher’s bespoke mouldings. For those customers who live further afield, we take great care in transporting artwork to its final destination. All art is wrapped securely & larger pieces are sent with our personal courier and hand delivered at a time to suit our customers.
When he feels inspiration, Doug grabs whatever is to hand to sketch out an idea. As a result, his studio is filled with napkins, bits of newspaper and assorted cards with unfinished drawings on them.
On finding fame through art, Doug said. ‘What a fantastic feeling it is to know that people all over the world enjoy my artwork as I do. Satisfaction doesn’t get better than that.’
In 2019 we were so pleased to welcome Doug to the Rose Gallery in Northampton for his first visit to the county. Doug delighted customers old & new alike introducing his new collection & signing dedications. We were privileged to secure a number of his Original paintings for the show together with Doug's pencil sketches. Ahead of the visit Doug was interviewed on Radio Northampton. These pencil sketches show the thought process & development of Doug's art from the initial idea for a brand new piece through to the finished painting. For collector's the pencil sketches provide an opportunity to own an affordable Original work of art. Sign up to our newsletter for details of future visits by Doug Hyde and other artists represented by the gallery.
