Our favourite French artist, Margaux Carpentier, will be showing her work in the capital of love from today until the 25th of June. Her exhibition “the secret life of being” epitomise perfectly the earthy nature of her art as well as her folk-tastic narrative scenery. Margaux’s illustrations sit in the sweet spot between a painterly tone and graphic vector style, a real feast for the eyes!

The British Royal Family are undeniably captivating - while the entire world has eyes on the royal baby and wedding, surprisingly few of us have a clear view of their history. Don’t panic, Susan Burghart has taken the responsibility to illustrate the monarchy’s timeline from William III up to Elizabeth II for the Historic Royal Palaces, which will make you a royal expert!

First solo show for Deanna Halsall - she will be exhibiting at Common in Manchester from the 26th of April. Deanna invites you to take a voyeuristic look through the windows of a fictional building to see the everyday goings on of the people within; a playful exploration of the brief moments in life that would otherwise go unnoticed. A master of shape, shadow, lighting, tone, composition, colour palette and more!

Lou Beach’s collages could be confused with a scene from Salvador Dali’s paintings. A strong narrative and surrealist feeling that led Lou to create some of the most famous album covers such as Everybody by Madonna or Dude Ranch by Blink 182. In a completely different register, Lou is coming up with a solo exhibition in Jack Fischer Gallery in Los Angeles from April 7th. “I have heard it said that anyone can make a collage and that it is child’s play, but I find it difficult; each work is a laborious task of discovery and invention with numerous mistakes, false starts, delusions, distractions and dead ends before the picture and its meaning reveals itself. My intention is always to create something poetic, but inevitably end up with a cartoon or fairy tale. I work in chaos.”

Neoclassicism with a twist! This is humbly how we would describe David de las Heras's unique style. He creates perfect harmony between shadow and light. With a narrative approach, David’s endearing and expressive portraits have led him to an exhibition at the Art fair “Drawing Room” in Madrid, a real treat for the eyes!
