Anse Krut at Stuart Shave/Modern Art, Fitzroy Square


Modern Art is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new paintings by Ansel Krut. This is the artist's second solo show with Modern Art, and is four years since he last exhibited in London.

Ansel Krut's exhibition at Modern Art's Fitzroy Square gallery presents a body of new paintings with a distinctive painterly character that portray figures, buildings, and references to the modern canon. While underpinned with Krut's characteristically mordant humour this powerful body of new paintings sees an engagement with themes of violence, power and melancholy.

Ansel Krut was born in Cape Town, South Africa, in 1959. He has lived and worked in London since the early 1980s. Ansel Krut graduated with an MA in Painting from the Royal College of Art in 1986, after which he was awarded the Abbey Major scholarship to the British School in Rome. He attended the Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris (1982-1983), and completed his BA in Fine Art at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg (1979-1982).

Ansel Krut's paintings are to be the subject of a forthcoming survey exhibition 'Verbatim' at the Jerwood Gallery, Hastings, 3 May ' 9 July 2014.
