Salt and Pegram is proud to present Contemporary Illustration, the second in a series of exhibitions in our redeveloped showroom off Brick Lane, following on from the huge success of the Chloe Roach show.
We like to bring a creative touch to our role as suppliers of innovative, contemporary contract furniture and have curated the program to explore the relationship between art and design by juxtaposing exciting contemporary art with the in house Workhouse collection.
The exhibition will feature the work of Kev Munday, Helen Lord and an installation piece created live by Evguenia Jokhova.
An illustrator who draws on past experience as a graffiti artist Kev creates imaginative compositions inspired by the people he sees. Incorporating references to aboriginal and tribal artwork his pieces are unplanned and unsketched, created using combinations of spray paint, acrylics, marker pens, laser etchings, lino printing and digital methods.
Helen Lord is a London-based illustrator and story artist. She studied fine art at Kingston University. Her work explores patterns in nature, beginning at quantum level and inspired by everything from the Fibonacci sequence to falling leaves. She creates fictional narratives influenced by classic fiction, folklore, dreams, current events and music. Her approach varies from ‘automatic drawing’ to ‘Wouldn’t it be brilliant if…’
Evy Jokhova creates wall drawings on behalf of BROQWIEM, a freelance company led by herself and entrepreneur James Metcalfe, working to create new spaces and alternate worlds within the surfaces of walls, floors, ceilings and objects. These are always sight specific, taking into consideration the character and location of the building.
