In the docks of Trinity Buoy Wharf London, Trinity Art Studios last night hosted their 2017 Summer Exhibition. Sponsored by San Miguel, the studio soon became bustling with art fans eager to seek out the latest pieces from the studio’s up-and-coming artists, all equipped with a beer in hand. From the point of arrival, all guests were greeted with open arms by the artists who were more than happy to share the stories and motivations behind their work. Due to the friendly interaction and relaxed ambiance it was clear that despite the eclectic art on display, the artists and supporters of Trinity Art Studios not only shared a passion for art but were also a close-knit creative community and genuine friends. Here are a few up-and-coming artists from this summer’s show to look out for over the next few months:
Ian Robert Felton
Both the organizer of the event, and a talented artist in his own right, Ian originally started off in the sports industry, working in snow sports. He now follows his other passion, art, and while focusing most of his work on oil painting, he still allows his previous sporting experiences to influence his work.
The youngest artist to be shown in the event, Taro found his passion for the industry after studying illustration at Middlesex University. He focuses on the investigative nature of art and works off his instincts, paying attention to current events of injustice taking place in the news. His artwork highlights feelings of hopelessness that currently takes place in society, and is definitely an artist to look out for in the future.
Sequin’s work definitely lives up to her name and has a deep-rooted connection to calmness and meditation. The exhibition was the first showing of her collaborative piece with Hylemo, named ‘Peace Pyramid’. This structure seemed to take center stage at the show and was definitely the focal point of the evening allowing visitors to climb inside and experience its tranquility for themselves.
A realist artist originally from Spain, Ana’s pieces at this exhibition focused on realist portraits of women. Her work presents her clear talent and attention to detail, and she hopes to develop her skills in photography in the future.
Creating colourful abstract pieces, Fluff’s work indeed reflects her exquisite personality. It is hard to believe that she only started painting just a few years ago. Specializing in oil paintings, Fluff openly discusses how she lets her feelings guide and take control when creating her artwork.
Despite only being in the UK for 3 months, Italian-born Muratore displayed his Sculpture work at Trinity yesterday. After explaining his background in finance it is clear that his real passion lies in sculpting and is something he should continue to pursue.
Trinity Studios’s next exhibition will be in the Autumn of 2017, and is definitely worth a visit.
