British artist Thom Trojanowski Hobson will be exhibiting a small selection of new paintings, sculpture and collage at KOP Artspace in this debut european solo show.

About

A recent University of the Arts London graduate and founding member of London based arts collective The Cone Sisters, Trojanowski relocated his studio to Antwerp last year for a year long residency. Here he has been working on a new series of work. This show will be a sneak preview at some of the paintings, sculpture and collage created in the lead up to a bigger show in London in summer 2016.

The work is inspired by the 1969 film Midnight Cowboy and the parallels it has between his own time spent in this city. Depicting himself as a cartoon 'cowboy', the work shows the path he is taking in regards as to what it means to be a contemporary painter and the struggles he has with his own practise. In search of glitz, glamour and success, this work shows him discovering it's actually a life of hustle, poverty, pounding the street and solidifying friendships with partners in crime and grime.

Presenting a mixture of collage, painting and sculpture, visitors may expect a slight new direction for this young artist, however sticking to the colourful, expressive style he is known for.
