Time-lapse footage showing the creation of ‘People’. Also painted in 2018 on a wooden panel, measuring 40.1cm x 40.8cm, in acrylics. The painting shows a view of Surrey Street Market, in Croydon, Surrey, on the edge of south London (but with fewer vegetables than the other work).
The opening evening of my 'Featured Artist' exhibition at the Studio Upstairs gallery in Croydon went well, with a good attendance and some impressive live music from 'Five Minutes Later'.
Not only did I have some selected pieces at the front of the gallery, but I managed to take over the window, too, with a range of artworks, cushions, prints and other merchandise tastefully arranged by the gallery. I've attached here some photos from Studio Upstairs, and used with permission, along with links to some video that they shot on the night. The work is available to view and buy until late August, Monday to Friday, 10am to 5.00pm at 2-4 Park Street, Croydon, CR0 1YE.
Two videos of the evening posted by Studio Upstairs to their Facebook page
South London prints now in stock at Coulsdon art centre.
Coulsdon's Art Rebellion are now stocking my prints of Croydon's various views (along with other prints of my art from around the area). They are an interesting place: art gallery, cafe, shop, picture framers and with a warren of corners and rooms to investigate. When I was dropping off my prints, there was a film crew upstairs shooting something for a murder mystery drama, so you never know what you might find down there in leafy Coulsdon.
Croydon-inspired paintings feature in a new group art show in Brixton.
A quartet of my south London-inspired paintings is being exhibited as part of the "Bad Behaviour Open 2016". http://badbehaviour.london/exhibit…/bad-behaviour-open-2016/. The show runs from 14th-19th October at Brixton East 1871 http://www.brixtoneast1871.co.uk/venue-info. The private view was a very lively (and busy affair) and hopefully the crowds will continue whilst the exhibition is up. There is a broad range of disciplines and the space is a lovely restored Victorian building. Worth a visit (but then I would say that, wouldn't I?)
