Mark your calendars because this September, The Unit London, an independent artist-led gallery, proudly presents U, a unique contemporary portrait exhibition led by an incomparable ensemble of six emerging artists from around the world. The highly anticipated event celebrates The Unit London’s 1-year anniversary, and will unveil a new collection of artwork with bold, creative sparks.
Steeped in profoundly ingrained insights, the works of Jake Wood-Evans, Ivan Alifan, Henrik Uldalen, Mark Demsteader, Ryan Hewett, and SNIK will far surpass traditional portraiture and ultimately frame the psychological. Entwining visual perspectives, each artist conveys the modern notions of fractured identity, human intimacy and self-expression while engaging and guiding viewers through the collective exploration of individualism within today’s hyper-digital society.
From Jake Wood-Evans renowned combination of classical references flanking his signature ethereal, contemporary style to the erotic nuances of Ivan Alifan’s ambiguous milky renderings, the fragile beauty of U will surely ignite a lingering surreal ambiance. In addition to the otherworldly works of Henrik Uldalen speaking volumes within juxtaposing states of limbo and longing, artists Mark Demsteader, Ryan Hewett and SNIK will also be shown. For more information, please contact the gallery directly.
