We recently interviewed artist Jadryk Brown to ask him about his work, his creative  background and his latest show:

Q: What are you doing right now?

A: Right now I am finishing off a few pieces for the show and working on designing some much larger figurative works for my collaboration with Deanna Tyson.

Q: Tell us about your show.

A: The show is a collection of work which I have produced in the last year, largely influenced by the couple of months I spent in Los Angeles last summer. The work focuses on ideas of the forgotten, unnoticed and discarded coming together with the beauty of typography and classical  oil paintings. But I’m doing it with spray paint, biro and a bucket of black gloss.

Q: When did you start making art?

A: I wouldn’t be able to say when I first started making art. I guess it’s more that I’ve just never stopped. I’ve always been doing something in one way or another, whether just throwing paint about or drawing terrible pictures of cars, so I think it’s more that it’s just grown and become more of an expression of my thoughts and ideas.

Q: What are your influences as an artist?

A: Everything influences my work. Anything I encounter day to day  can give me an idea, whether it’s a colour, a shape, a piece of lettering, some clothing, or something I hear about will give me the start of an idea behind a piece.

Visionary Art of David Richardson: ‘Wedding at Cana – Water into Wine Miracle’ 25th April – 30th April ( 7pm-9pm)

We are proud to announce the following  art exhibition by David Richardson: ‘Wedding at Cana – Water into Wine Miracle’  to be launched at the Cambridge Art Salon on 25th April 2014.

David Richardson has termed his style as Expressive Symbol Surrealism as it crosses several artist styles. This was born out of an earlier background training under a Neo-expressionist in the late 1980’s and earlier 90’s. 

This exhibition will include 6 New Testament inspired paintings called ‘The 6 Apostles of Cambridge’ and 12 other paintings that are psychoanalytical in nature investigating the personification of human emotion at an archetypal level.

Opening event: 25th April ( 7pm-9pm) 

WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ALL THERE!
