We are delighted to announce an exhibition of work from two rising urban artists – Lhouette and JJ Adams – in July.
Born in Luton, Lhouette’s urban touch lends as much to Street Art as it does to Pop Art, deploying a specific stencilling technique which characterises much of his work, flooding the outlines with visually arresting coloured patterns, symbols, images and text to instil a sense of urgency and a call to arms mentality on those who pore over it.
Lhouette’s decidedly mixed media work starts from a design platform and is then executed through the use of stencils, acrylic and aerosol paints on rough ply canvas, and then sealed in courtesy of a clear lacquer resin finish. Read more about Lhouette.
JJ Adams is a mixed media artist from South West England currently living and working in London. He uses a range of mixed media in his work from spray paint to hand painting acrylics, screen printing, collage and digital matte painting as well as photography.
“JJ Adams is the Zappa or Hendrix of the UK Fine Art scene. I no longer walk past a gallery without looking in, he’s taken icons and buildings we know so well and added a little drop of LSD”
Recently featured in Vogue, GQ and Cheshire Life magazine, JJ Adams is rapidly becoming one of the UK’s most talked about and collectable artists and has been described on social media as the next ‘Andy Warhol’ (although JJ reckons this was an auto-correct mistake). He is bold and confident in style often completely transforming celebrity images or iconic landmarks with his own inimitable edge and blurring the lines between digital, pop and fine art.
