I am pleased to say that my painting ‘East End Crossing’ has been selected for The New English Art Club’s Annual Open Exhibition at the Mall Galleries in Central London between 16 and 25 June 2016.

“Continuing to build on the tradition of painting and drawing from observation, the New English is a vibrant and diverse group of visual artists whose work is highly collectible and widely admired.”

About my painting

Painting of Spitalfields in London

London’s East End is, and always has been in a state of flux. Nothing remains the same for long, and this instability gives rise to contrasts.

It is the tension between the contrast that I have tried to capture in my painting. Namely, the lighter, upper levels of East End life, and a darker underworld just beneath the surface.

The painting is based on a crossing on Commercial Street in Spitalfields.
