Part of the Pride show 'Familiar Strangers'

JUNE 1ST TILL JULY 31ST 

I was lucky enough to be asked to create my solo show 'Familiar Strangers' for Brookfield Properties as part of their celebration for Pride.

Split amongst two of their iconic sites. City Point and Aldgate Tower in London.

All artworks are for sale unless stated otherwise please note that delivery will be after the exhibition has finished.

 

Oil on canvas
