Nadiya Pavliv features in the Middlesex University Art and Design Degree Show 2010 currently at The Old Truman Brewery (Friday 4th June - Monday 7th June). The exciting range of work on show covers fine art, fashion, graphic design, illustration, photography, interior architecture, furniture, product design and even sonic art!
Kent-based artist and photographer Valerie Dean and Roger Dean will make their London debut on 5th June 2010 when an exhibition of more than 40 of their paintings and photographs opens at independent bookshop and gallery Pages of Hackney in East London. Valerie’s approach to art is refreshingly honest, and her distinctive style has won plaudits from art buyers in Brussels and the UK. To capture the ‘emerging images’ on the canvas, she mixes acrylics with household items bought from her local B&Q – though the final results are far from everyday. A member of the Society of Catholic Artists, many of Valerie’s paintings have a spiritual dimension, with angels, messengers and the holy family emerging from the abstract. Other paintings take their inspiration from landscapes, in the UK and abroad. Roger Dean will also be exhibiting a series of photographic prints on canvas alongside Valerie’s paintings. Taking inspiration from the natural world, water and reflection are key themes, with an international edge.
