Michael Armitage Studio visit - Monday 16th November, 6:30 - 8pm

We are very kindly being invited to visit the studio of young artist Michael Armitage. Graduating from the RA Schools in 2010, Michael was involved in several group shows, including those at The Drawing Room and South London Gallery, before securing his first solo show at White Cube in April. The show was a huge success and Michael is now one of the youngest artists represented by the blue-chip gallery.

Utterly charming and very enthusiastic, Michael draws on his Kenyan upbringing as the main inspiration for his works. Using canvas made of bark cloth from Uganda, Michael’s works evoke the Fauves and the Post-Impressionists, through his use of bright colours, fluid lines and different paint textures. His works are joyful, thought-provoking, and totally unique on the art market.

Michael’s studio is in Tannery Arts, the studio space above The Drawing Room in Bermondsey.
