Hugo Mulder (’72) aka DHM is a painter, street artist and graphic designer from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. He started doing graffiti in ’84 – graphic design in ’90 – and back to the streets with stickers, past-ups and mural painting in 2001. His street art work is a series of mostly animals all drawn in his well known tribal/tattoo style. Next to that he creates hand painted canvases showing the timeless unity between word and image. The last 4 years though he is mostly focussing on the female body shape in a new line driven abstract figurative style.
Highlights: Nike, Adidas, O’Neill and Coca Cola. Hugo’s work has often been published nationally as well as internationally in books, newspapers, magazines and online. His work has been exhibited in several solo- and groupshows in a.o. Miami, London, Paris, Berlin, Brussels, Lyon, Angers, Cologne, Baltimore, Den Haag, Amsterdam and Rotterdam. In 2006 he had his first museum show in the group exhibition “Dutch Masters” in Gemeente Museum Den Haag (GEM), which he also co curated.
