De Sousa Hughes is proud to introduce new works by modern expressionist painter Myke Reilly. Reilly’s large scale paintings have strong mid-century influences and have been receiving a lot of attention from architects and interior designers on the west coast. His recent works are minimal and neutral in palette.



Myke Reilly, an abstract expressionist, was born in San Diego in 1961 and learned to paint under the guidance of his uncle, mid-century desert painter Jerry Reilly.   With his uncle’s support and guidance Reilly became a prolific painter at a very young age and spent much of his childhood and teen years in front of his painters easel.

In 1978, At the age of 16, Reilly moved to San Francisco where he attracted significant international success as a recording artist, sound designer, interior designer and digital media designer. He collaborated with many noted  artists of the period such as Tom Bonauro, Rex Ray and Charles Brown in the genres of sculpture, film making, and electronic sound installations. His dynamic sense of color and sound translated well into all forms of media and was supported by San Francisco’s exploding high technology movement.
