This show is mainly composed of a series of pairs of black and white drawings. The main emphasis of the exhibition is to convey a spectrum of emotions through the facial expressions and eyes of the subjects. They display emotions and feelings, ranging from excitement and happiness to sadness, hunger and exhaustion. The themes are personal to Raj, drawing on his knowledge of different cultures, his Sikh background and ultimately how he sees the world.
Raj is a local artist who has lived in Leyton his entire life. His medium of choice is graphite and charcoal pencils. He describes his art as being ‘realistic’ at the moment, but his ultimate goal is to be a ‘hyperrealist’ artist.
The private view is on Thursday 14 August from 6:30 to 8:30pm.
