Kevin McHugh, creator of DiscoShark, has successfully merged his interest of marine life and passion for conservation into one-of-a-kind pioneering sculptures. The pieces are meant to change the way people perceive the passé notion of "trophy fish" by transforming the idea into stunning works of art. The custom sculptures are meticulously encrusted with Swarovski crystals and other hand-applied finishes. Most pieces take an average of one to two months to complete.

Kevin is an official partner with Swarovski Crystals as well as the conservation societies Oceana, Shark Team One and EWS/WWF. He has been named an official artist of the Coachella Music and Arts Festival for 5 consecutive years and there is now a DiscoShark AR filter in Coachella’s app.

McHugh has been exhibited in both traditional and non-traditional settings. His pieces have sold from gallery walls, art fairs, hotel lobbies, charity auctions, nightclubs, and designer flagship stores. Kevin’s pieces can be found in collections around the world, including in Armenia, Spain, the United Kingdom and Brazil.

A portion of the proceeds from all works sold is donated to marine research and conservation organizations. Kevin is also a very active Board Member of the Lower Eastside Girls Club.
