Hugh Chevins was born in Nottinghamshire in 1931, He studied Painting and History of Art at Twickenham at the Twickenham School of Art before continuing his studies at the Royal Academy where he was awarded both the Ivory and Bronze Medals.
He exhibited throughout the UK, has had a number of One Man Shows in the West End and his work is in the permanent collections of the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam and the Fund for the Republic Museum in New York.
Hugh spent many years in the commercial art world where he was commissioned by ICI, British Rail and Brooke Bond to mention but a few, at the same time producing a host of finely detailed book illustrations.
Over the years his public commissions have included a series of oil paintings for the Science Museum, a fifteen by thirty foot mural for a London School and the restoration of the domed altar ceiling of St. Saviours, Lewisham.

Hugh retired from the commercial world and concentrated on full time painting. He worked entirely in gouache and oil which gave his work an intensity of colour and depth. His studies of land and town scapes all have an emotive edge. The characters seen, the buildings, the atmosphere are all lovingly portrayed with a wryness of wit and a surety of style that immediately attracts the eye.
Hugh died on 18th Dec 2003 from a heart attack. He had been ill and unable to paint for some time prior to his death. He had moved in 2003 and had a new studio built, sadly he was not able to use it.
