"I would not call myself an impulsive painter; rather the experiences of my travels are collated in the form of charcoal studies, colour studies and then the final symphony on the main canvas.
The imagery of Spain in all its facets is an impression upon which I apply the plastic qualities of oil paint. Colours become real light and space within the canvases, building the surface into a composed impasto and optical contrast. Light against dark fat against thin and
so the drama grows." - Zil Hoque
Zil's work echoes the passion and verve so integral to Spanish culture and its people. His paintings are arresting in their nature and notable for the use of searing reds, rich burnt browns and terrific flashes of yellow.
Zil has works in private collections along with a number of significant public collections such as: The Bank of England, Old Mutual Insurance and the Ministry of Defence Art Collection.
