Masters of Invention: graffiti art meets contemporary craft - Sat 18 May 2019 -Sun 07 Jul 2019

Jubilee Gallery. Open daily, 10am-5.30pm. Free entry.

The evolution of European graffiti art is explored by bringing together a new collection of paintings and artworks by some of the culture’s most influential artists of the past 40 years.

Masters of Invention presents exciting works by a generation of contemporary artists from the UK and Europe, each of whom explores creative possibilities away from city walls and subways. Among those featured are London-based Elk O’Sullivan who makes paintings steeped in the history of the colour schemes of New York City's subway-graffiti. Dutch contemporary artist/sculptor Boris Tellegen who is renowned for pushing the boundaries of the form, converts 2D graffiti lettering into abstract 3D experiences. View illustrations and lettering from the inimitable Mode2, as well as ceramics and sculpture by London designer, Khashayar Naimanan. London-based Errol Donald  designer and lettering artist, brings handcrafted forms into the 3rd dimension, while British-born abstract artist Keith Hopewell presents vibrant, spraypaint installations.

E-Donald-Before-the-DawnCurated by artists Errol Donald and Khashayar Naimanan, Masters of Invention acknowledges the continuing legacy of a now global art movement, and a generation of innovators that continue to explore its creative potential. Free entry. Open daily, 10am-5.30pm
