LONDON MILES - Literal.eyes - Exhibition Coming Soon

To Kick start the summer, London Miles are very excited to announce our next 
exhibition titled Literal.eyes. An all-new group show that takes a closer 
look at the content found inside the dusty book covers of iconic written 
works by great literary masters. Whether inspired by a novel, poem, or a 
poignant phrase from their chosen literary piece, 30 artists from across 
Europe are recreating how they visually and literally interpret their all 
time favourite piece of narrative into a painting. Iconic writers whose 
narratives are being recreated include the all famous children’s 
favourite and cartoonist Dr. Seuss to our very own national literary hero; 
William Shakespeare.  Artists have chosen pieces of literature from a 
broad range of authors, as well as foreign writers relevant to their 
home origin. Some examples include, digital painter Tom Bagshaw who 
will recreate ‘A Midsommers Night Dream’ by Shakespeare, Nom Kinnear 
King paints ‘The House of Sprits’ by Isabel Allende and Camilla D’Errico 
takes inspiration from the Opera “Aida” by Giuseppe Verdi.

The show opens in an all new gallery space in East London!! 
Opening on Thursday, May 12th 2011 from 6pm to 11pm. 

Location: 65 Hanbury Street. Shoreditch. EI 5JP READ MORE
