London artists reveal their inspirations

London artists inspirations exhibition

Inspirations is an exciting new exhibition in which London artists explore their sources of inspiration covering everything from other artists, philosophers, to places and even the wind!

Devised and organised by Paul Tecklenberg, the show uses text and accompanying images supplied by exhibiting members, in conjunction with their own work, to reflect their major influences including that of tutors.

The original idea for the exhibition was based on a suggestion from Head of Art at Kensington and Chelsea College and London Group member Matthew Kolakowski.

Matthew says ‘The show demonstrates the importance of key moments in which life-changing works of art or other images and objects are encountered. Equally, it emphasises the major significance that a sole tutor can have on an artist’s development’.

Exhibition runs from 20th Jan-4th Feb 2010
Private View Thursday 21st Jan 6.30pm-9.00pm
‘Meet the artists’ – Thursday 28th Jan 6.30pm-9.00pm. A selection of the artists will elaborate on their inspirations and how this has influenced their art Practice
