2014 has got off to a great start with an impressive exhibition of sculptures and drawings by Stephen Towns. Our current exhibition by Hampshire-based artist Kev Munday blends street art with a graphic edge. For more information on our upcoming exhibitions, see the Future Exhibitions page.
Kev Munday: The Way I See Things
From 3rd March - 9th April 2014; Private View: Thursday 6th March 18:30-20:30.
An exhibition of colour and content rich paintings, drawings and prints by Hampshire-based artist. 'The Way I See Things' features work in a variety of mediums including aerosol paint, acrylics, marker pens, laser etchings and digital illustration on unusual objects, using their shapes and textures to influence his art. This exhibition features a series of violins and an antique wooden church organ pipe. Primarily drawing from his imagination, Munday's work contains a child like quality and an element of humour aiming to communicate as much to a 7-year-old kid as a serious art collector.
Kev started his creative career painting graffiti with friends as an early teen. A decade on, his work still carries the raw energy of street art, blended with an intelligent graphic edge, gained through producing illustrations for clients including Walt Disney, Fracture Skateboards and Monster Energy. Describing his artwork as ‘the offspring of people watching and imagination’, Munday is inspired by styles as diverse as huichol art and kawaii graphics. His work has been exhibited all over the world and has received praise from worldwide design press and having recently been named one of Artfinder's top 10 artists of 2013, Kev Munday is looking forward to many more years of watching paint dry.

Stephen Towns: Sculpture, Transformations & Equivalents
From 20 January to 24 February 2014; Private View: Friday 24 January, 18:00-21:00.
An exhibition of wall mounted sculptures inspired by the underlying structural principles inherent in natural form. Stephen Towns is a sculptor whose working methodology is shaped by biological sciences and simple mathematical modelling. He uses a strategic approach in which the decision making is shaped by the application of simple rules. This enables him to generate biomorphic forms that are not imitative of any single natural form, but are evocative of diverse natural forms. For the sculptures in this exhibition, colour and surface are integral to the identity of the object, accompanied by related drawings.
