Over the years Paul Catherall has become well known for his pared-down versions of famous London landmarks such as Battersea Power Station, The Oxo Tower and Tate Modern.
Included in the exhibition will be the artwork used for his latest set of posters which have been released as part of the #LondonIsOpen campaign currently on display across London’s underground, which explore the view of the City behind Blackfriars Bridge looking East.
We’re delighted to announce that For Arts Sake gallery will be launching a new work at this exhibition; a print which pays tribute to the Hoover Building in West London, one of London’s finest art deco designs. This remarkable landmark is a highlight of many people’s journey in and out of London, including Paul Catherall who drives past it on regular trips back to the Midlands to visit his family and witnesses it looming “like a gleaming white Art Deco palace on the dreary A40.”
At For Arts Sake gallery there will be two different sizes of Hoover prints available.
“With the small Hoover print I thought extending the red from the linear decoration would make a quite striking image against the grey, white and eau de nil of the building. While printing the proofs I tried a grey backdrop and thought that would make an atmospheric and graphic backdrop for the larger print.”
Combining an expert eye for composition and colour with consummate draughtsmanship Paul Catherall creates prints entirely by hand in a painstaking process that takes several weeks to complete. For Arts Sake Gallery is delighted to be bringing a range of his work, including depictions of other London landmarks, to Ealing giving people a chance to see the care and attention that goes into Paul’s work.
The exhibition is free to enter with all works available to buy.
There will also be a competition running on Facebook, for the opportunity to win a rare artists proof of Paul Catherall’s Hoover Building print in a pink colour way that will not be available anywhere else.
The exhibition will run for one month, from Friday 28th April and will present over 50 original works.
