The work of Billy Childish, an english born artist 1st December 1959 who is a bit of a polymath. Painter, musician, writer and poet, he touches many things with a delicacy that really does inhabit your soul. He takes the utterly ordinary and leaves you with an enduring memory. You could look at his works for a long time and derive a childish pleasure.

LAUDERDALE GALLERY LONDON

There is some of the work of Warren King that is raw, visceral and compelling and he really makes you see the world through his eyes. Growing up during the The Troubles of Northern Ireland has obviously been the crucible for his art. I look forward to seeing what he produces in ten years time.
