Art Student Makes Solo Exhibition Debut In Battersea
A rising artist studying at Kensington and Chelsea College is showcasing his talents to the public in a break-through solo exhibition.
Art student Steve Mumford is hoping to bring his unique collection of works to the mainstream in a show taking place at Acquire Arts Gallery in Battersea.
‘Junk Food 4 the Soul’, the thought-provoking exhibition explores the concept of consumerism and branding.
Many of the intriguing pieces on display form witty revelations about contemporary life and have been made from objects found on the street including fruit crates, shoelaces and a ball of string.
Steve, who has had a passion for art since a young age, said:
‘My show is going to be fresh and give people something to think about. It has taken awhile to produce but worth the wait I hope!’
‘Although I’ve debuted my work before in group exhibitions this will be the first time I’m going it alone.’
‘The course at the college has given me a great start to building my career. I hope to become an internationally recognised artist someday and this, hopefully, will be my first step towards that!’
‘Junk Food 4 the Soul’ opens on Wednesday October 6 and runs until Sunday October 10, from 12-7pm at Acquire Gallery, Battersea Park Road, London SW8 4BU.
The private view takes place on Thursday October 7, from 6-10pm, where guests will have the opportunity to meet with Steve.
