Renowned contemporary and visual Essex-based artist, Brian Parker will be exhibiting his vibrant and extraordinary art works in a spectacular solo show titled The Journey So Far…It’s all about me.
Located within Pall Mall’s illustrious and historic Royal Opera Arcade Gallery, (originally founded in 1818), and immersed within the district’s stimulating and high-end local art hub – the National Gallery, Christie’s, and the Royal Academy of Arts are all located nearby – the exhibition is a must-see for avid art enthusiasts and those familiar to the creative area.
With a magnificent collection of works crafted over ten years of daily painting, Parker – whose creations express his own personal views in as minimalistic a style and colour palette as possible – will showcase an array of his worldly ‘obsessions’ through art, such as People, Places, Dancers & Scenes.
Greatly inspired by his relationship in the 60s with prominent multi-dimensional artist David Hockney, Parker’s work showcases ‘every day’ images immersed in bold, and vivd colours that spark the visual senses. His aim, he says, is to always leave the viewer “with a feeling of satisfaction”.
A previous finalist in the Art Call 2018, as well as in The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition, Parker’s two-man show at the East End’s Wayward Gallery won him two ‘best in show’ prizes. Don’t miss this special opportunity to witness his wonderful works up-close.
Parker said of his work: “I am driven by the need to appeal to the visual sense of my viewers, so the aesthetic impact it has on the viewer is more important to me than any particular theme.”
Oliver Norris, of the Lemon Art gallery, said: “A true aesthete, Brian Parker’s artwork is both meticulous and beautiful, characterised by clean, simple lines and a bold yet sophisticated use of colour. Parker is an artist that is worth investing in from both an aesthetic viewpoint and as an investment.”
