Light Grey Art Lab is celebrating their 5th anniversary, and I'm pleased to announce I'll be participating in the 'Tobeyou' exhibition that marks the event. The theme of the show is telling your own story, the story behind the artist and the art.
In my piece 'Creation' I focused on my teenage years, when I began to passionately draw and became enveloped in imaginary worlds of my own creation. Adolescence is physically and emotionally fraught, and by diving into imaginative works I shielded myself from anxiety. As a side effect of finding peace through art, I also gained the courage to pursue a career as an artist. For me, the purpose of my art is to bring happiness and wonder to others, so I hope these phoenix/dragon/unicorn beasts can for a moment transport you to a magical reality.
The show opens March 3, and prints of this piece will be available at the exhibition. For more info please visit the LGAL website:
