The Limp They Call 'Swagger' : Drawings by Gerard Osenele Ukpan


Solo show. Private view and performance by the artist on Saturday 1st February, from 7pm.

"My aim is to use the show as a mirror for our modern day society. There'll be artworks depicting social and political challenges. There'll be poetry, drum beats and open mic slots.

"I have always been a poet who often sketched as a hobby whilst commuting to and from work. It was never anything serious until I met Ulf Sandstrom, a Swedish Life Coach, trauma tapper and an excellent pianist. It was he who showed me with a few tasks the entire spectrum of my career as a ballpoint artist.

"Since then I've been creating portraits, surrealist and abstract pieces with ballpoint pens (biros) on the train. My style has now evolved into a pure and unadulterated language that is intended to speak directly to your soul, without need for translation".
