Doug Hyde’s original paintings, sculpture and limited editions have become highly sought-after collectors’ items over the last two decades. Named in a BBC news broadcast as the most popular living artist in the UK, Hyde has been the subject of numerous books and articles and has been featured on national TV on several occasions.
Over the years, Hyde’s style has shifted and progressed in subtle ways, reflecting the changes in both his personal circumstances and the world around him. While his work has developed to reflect changes in his own life and introduce new media, the style of his works remains recognisable with their stories of love, friendship and adventure.
Doug Hyde has built a formidable reputation as the man behind ‘the smile’. The iconic smile is a signature motif that has become synonymous with the artist. Its recurring presence celebrates the bond that has formed between him and his audience, as the face smiling out at us so directly engages us immediately and invites us to respond in kind.
Whether you are looking to reminisce your childhood, celebrate the animals in your life or share messages of love with those close to you, Doug's amazing artworks are an opportunity to bring joy into any room.
