Dilated Pupils – An exhibition of Ink & Graphite Illustrations from multidisciplinary surrealist artist Luke Gray.
The exhibition explores the psychedelic state and draws visual influences from far east indigenous cultures he encountered on his 7 years of travelling.
Born color blind he was forced to use an almost exclusively black and white palette, working with patterns and textures rather than color. After visiting over 50 countries he became influenced by a wide range of multicultural art styles and traditional mediums combining and integrating techniques and patterns from different cultures and religions into his work. An amateur ethnologist, when travelling he often visits indiginous tribes, spending time to live with them and learn from them, taking meticulous notes on their textile patterns, tattoo markings and sacred symbols.
His meticulous works will be on display 16th April – 16th May
Kev Munday joined us for Art @Work project to share his colourful thoughts and create something special for Work Bar space.
His mural will take place at the venue on 2017 June – September.
Kev Munday creates positive, vibrant artwork inspired by people watching and the every day. exaggerating and celebrating the ordinary, Kev aims for his art to appeal to all ages and make the viewer think and smile at the same time. his work takes inspiration from artforms as diverse as kawaii graphics and Huichol yarn paintings.
Using bold lines and block colours, the vibrancy of Munday’s style creates an enthralling visual experience. his iconic crowd paintings depict a sea of unique individuals which pays tribute to the beauty found in diversity. each individual portrait is equally valued, taken altogether, the effect is a striking vision of community which is more than the sum of its individual parts.
Kev has created artwork for brands including Walt Disney, Graham & Brown wallpaper, Fracture Skateboards and Uni-Ball and his art is collected and exhibited worldwide. having recently been named by the Telegraph as a ‘British artist to invest in right now’, Munday’s work can be found transcending gallery walls and onto a plethora of surfaces, including everything from police cars to pianos, billboards to grandfather clocks.
Relishing the opportunity to work in the public domain, Kev likes to see everything as a canvas and can be regularly found producing his artwork live at a variety of events.
