Save Event: Kent/Chinnici - A Synergy of Sons

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Recently Kent Galleries (my father's company) was approached by the famous Italian artists Lorenzo Chinnici’s son Francesco, about doing a collaboration of 2 very different artists styles and tastes.


Francesco Chinnici instantly fell in love with David Kent, and his quite quirky and surreal pop art he was producing, unaware that his father and my father was great friends of old, and met up 41 years ago when Lorenzo was doing a show of Contemporary Italian artists in 1974.

The reason why they were friends was not only they were 2 great artists, but they also had in common, my late uncles Pepe Carrion, who often shared an evening’s company with Salvador Dali who wrote many letters saying “I love your paintings of the night my boy”.
