AboutThis December, Lucas Price will be exhibiting at Rove Gallery, Hoxton square with a body of work developed during his time on the RCA MFA painting course.
A series of paintings depicting everyday objects, and monochrome passages of text, the show, "TEAM Atlas", will be the first in Price' Atlas project, and as such sets in motion a series of possible avenues of inquiry and points of departure.
Paintings of photographs of sculptures. Lines from songs heard on the radio. Logos from the movies. A screwed "NBA" logo. Linton Kwesi Johnson. The middle of Nowhere, The Centre of Everywhere. Half a Haiku. Jesus Christ.
London based Price started painting on the street as part of the graffiti crew BC, and then went on to study at RCA.
He has recently been collaborating with renowned Japanese designer Kazuki Kuraishi on a clothes label, A.Four.
