London Miles is proud to present an all-new group exhibition that takes a closer look at the content found inside the dusty book covers of iconic written works by great literary masters from across all generations. Literal-eyes concentrates specifically at the ways in which great writers have inspired this hand selected group of young and emerging European artists to be the painters they are today.
Whether inspired by a novel, poem, or a poignant phrase from their chosen literary piece, 30 artists are recreating how they visually and literally interpret their all time favourite piece of narrative into a real life 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 their literary works from a broad range of authors, as well as foreign writers relevant to their home origin.
Exhibiting Artists include:
Adam Oehlers, Andrew Rae, Alex Young, Alexander Kozer Robinson, Ania Tomicka, Camilla D'Ericco, Candy Bird, Carles Gomila, Carne Griffiths, Catalina Viejo Lopez de Roda, Conrad Roset, Craww, David Marsh, Dennis Seide, Fernando Vicente, Joram Roukes, Koralie, Linnea Strid, Lisa Evans, Michael Forbes, Miss Led, My Dead Pony, Nom Kinnear King, Ruben Ireland, Sergio Mora, Sitnie, Tahnee Lonsdale, Tom Bagshaw, Virginie Bastin, Xue Wang, Zach Cohen.
