Johan Andersson : Stolen Faces

Curio will host an opening party for their “pop up” exhibition featuring UK artist & reality TV personality Johan Andersson on May 21st from 7-10pm. The “pop up” exhibit will only be up for a week!

Johan Andersson : Stolen Faces

From the artist’s website:

Johan Andersson has exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery as the youngest ever to be shortlisted for the BP Portrait Award (3rd prize) and was part of the Jerwood Contemporary Painters prize in 2008. He also recently exhibited in the V&A museum and last summer filmed the T.V series ‘Art of Survival’ for Sky which is due to broadcast this summer.

Andersson’s work resonates with many contemporary and socially complex issues. He has already successfully exhibited alongside Anish Kapoor, Sarah Lucas & Howard Hodgkin in the acclaimed Follow Your Art exhibition in aid of Assisting ‘Victims of Torture’ (hosted at the Royal Institution) as well as including work in the 2010 V&A Auction in aid of ‘Breakthrough Breast Cancer’.

STOLEN FACES seeks to give representation and visibility to those who do not conform to the artificial and image conscious, attributes so often propagated by onscreen and print media. In recognising the media’s capacity to distort and corrupt reality, Andersson’s paintings stand both in defiance and pride celebrating diversity in the knowledge that we are all uniquely made in God’s image.
