Welcome to Straightforward.se

Hello there! I’m Chris Hughes, your friendly neighbourhood artist and writer. Tucked away in the serene village of Duvbo, Sweden, I’ve found my haven for creativity. Here, amidst the tranquil whispers of nature, I bring my abstract art to life.

You can find these vibrant expressions of my soul at my very own exhibition space which serves as both a studio and a gallery. If you would like to pay a physical visit, you can find me at Duvkullavägen 1, 17276 Sundbyberg, every Sunday between 12:00 and 16:00.

But wait, there’s more… I’ve also spread my artistic wings online. You can find my latest creations on Instagram at galleritiokvadrat. Feel free to join me on this artistic journey and follow me there! Follow, like, comment, and do those other Instagram things.

Art isn’t just about creating; it’s about sharing, learning, and growing. That’s why I run two YouTube channels. One is a cozy corner where we can chat about the creative process of art and design. The other is a space where we delve into the technical aspects of art and design promotion, like tagging and AI.

Let’s also mention tiokvadrat.com. That’s my online shop where you can buy a few of the posters and art prints I’ve created as a tribute to some of the historical artist’s I most admire. Plus, of course there are a number of online print-on-demand shops I run where you can buy a wide range of goods featuring my designs like tiokvadrat, high-res-art, and niokvadrat on Redbubble, and tiokvadrat and galleritiokvadrat on TeePublic.

Before I picked up the paintbrush full-time, I spent over 30 years as a writer. From tedious user manuals to exciting (ahem) marketing materials, from FAQs to tenders, I’ve written them all. I’ve also dabbled in science fiction short stories, SF fanzines, game reviews, and a myriad of other topics. For a glimpse into my professional journey, do visit my LinkedIn profile.

This site, straightforward.se, is my little nook in the vast expanse of the internet. Here, I share my thoughts, my stories, and my life. While my Instagram art updates might not be as frequent as the changing seasons, I promise they’re worth the wait! But worry not, for my blog posts here are as plentiful as the stars in the night sky.

So come on in, explore, and lose yourself in the art and the words. Read the blog, share a laugh, shed a tear, and who knows, you might even find a piece of art or a product that calls out to you, or an idea that changes your life.

Welcome to my world!
