Traveling between the worlds of New York nightlife, fashion and music, Kevin McHugh became a fixture of them all. After decades of managing the careers of influential artists and DJ’s such as Nicole Moudaber and Danny Tenaglia, Kevin began a personal artistic exploration of his own along the way.
Inspired by his fishing trips with his father as a child, Kevin developed an interest in the beauty of sea life. He began creating fiberglass renditions of sailfish, and sharks, adorned with different materials: everything from iridescent mother of pearl and brilliant crystals to leather and lacquer.
The pieces are meant to change the way people perceive the notion of trophy fish by transforming them into stunning works of art. As conservancy and education have always been a part of Kevin’s work, he has worked closely with not only conservation groups such as Shark Savers but also The Billfish Foundation, the Ibiza Preservation Society and Oceana.
