AboutMelvyn Warren Smith will be holding his solo show âExposed' at Gallery150, the LSA-run gallery space in Leamington.
Born in Kingston-Upon-Thames, this internationally renowned artist studied Fine Art in Epson for six years, later becoming an illustrator for IPC and Grestock and Marsh, working on illustrations for short stories, books and magazines for the likes of Annabel, Maeve Binchy, Josephine Cox, The People's Friend, Woman and many more.
Melvyn, who currently lives and works near Leamington Hastings, is an eclectic and prolific artist, whose brushstrokes seem to effortlessly sweep across a wide range of subject matter, including still life, landscapes, portraits, and nudes.
But he is not just about art, he is also a passionate and charismatic personality. In fact, in the âExposed' exhibition invitation Melvyn is seen putting himself in the shoes of a life model, concealing his modesty with an artist's palette. And, with the vast array of small and large works, one gets the impression that he really is baring all, in what could almost be viewed as a âlife-time' showcase of works.
Curated by Kate Livingstone, the exhibition will be held from 22nd November until 4th December 2011. The private view will be held on Tuesday, 22nd November from 7pm.
