Ed Gray’s long awaited new exhibition of paintings takes the viewer on a tour of five diverse London locations. From street life in South London to Vauxhall commuters, Carnival revellers, Soho glitterati and York Hall boxers, Gray casts his net wide and catches all this useless beauty before it is swept away in the tide of London life.
His paintings explore migration, heritage, music, religion, sport and cafe culture through a human soup of lovers, fighters, workers, gossips, carousers and the broken and damaged. Fragments of lives spill from the street to the pages of his sketchbook and finally onto his canvases, celebrating the industry, passion and drive of Londoners and London itself. The exhibition links sketches and drawings to paintings, offering a deep insight into Gray’s working process.
