|Anthony John Gray|
Rather than host a conventional art exhibition, we have created an atmosphere which is both informal and engaging. Emulating the “Art Salon Style” of the Belle Époque and 1930’s Berlin, in which art can evolve and rejuvenate, thus creating a new platform for innovative ideas.
Anthony Gray’s collage-like juxtapositions, which often seem to endow women with power and enigma, fuse structure and the search for the ultimate freedom into a form that emanates from a place beyond subconscious production. We are also inordinately proud to be able to announce that Anthony will personally be launching his comprehensive book, which includes all of his major works and also many unseen works to date, created during a career spanning over 45 years.
It is noteworthy that one of his greatest admirers was Pablo Picasso himself. Bob Allen, an internationally acclaimed contemporary sculptor, is one of the many featured artists at the event alongside Julius Lewandowski. The Polish born artist, noted for his unconventional approach to portraiture, inspired by the painters of the Ancien Regime and the libertinesque writers of Europe, with his very own and personal interpretation, which catapults his works firmly into the 21st Century. His somewhat intoxicating images of an erotic and sometimes even sexual nature are provocative with that understated hint of satire.
Actress and singer Kate Thomas will be singing at the event accompanied by a live band. The International Artists’ Group Exhibition will be presented by London socialite Emmanuel Ray. Model & VIP Hostess Kelly Dawson will also play host at the exhibition.
