The work of Hugo Newton Surprises from a remote denominated region the Tiger, in the depths of the territory of Anzoátegui, already next of the fabulous Orinoco and surrounded by the technological watchtowers that extract wealth quoted in the planet in crisis like “el gold negro”.
Newton has had two, three years, a flashing outer race in the last. It has gained many prizes; it has received honors and distinctions, its work by first time-the that is at heart more at first sight conclusive-begins to be recognized.
The work of Newton has undressed of the vices and mannerisms which they give off all the languages, because more personnel has become, has included/understood better its terms, the modulation of the language who arrives by an almost natural movement, instinctive.
