He graduated from parsons school of design with a bfa in communication design.

Since 2007 Nisian Hughes has directed his talents towards a project of “moving images”, a series that he continues to build on today. unlike traditional film installations, hughes’ moving images” appear at first glance to be still. one of the subjects in the piece will move very slightly, but otherwise, hold the continuity of the image and moment.

Whereas in traditional film pieces, the viewer must commit some time to watching the piece, Hughes “moving images” allow the observer to walk away and come back without missing a thing. leaving the image on a continuous almost unchanging loop. hughes first drew the inspiration from a reproduction of a renaissance style painting he found in his hotel room at the chateau marmont in la. he continues to draw inspiration from reproduced classic renaissance paintings from all over the world.
