A Solo Art Exhibition by Chris Guest
1st December to 10th December 2017 Opening view: Friday 1st December 2017
LONDON: The Underdog, a multipurpose contemporary art gallery in London Bridge, is proud to present the first solo exhibition by British figurative artist Chris Guest. Chris combines figurative traditions with a modern subject matter. The exhibition will feature new artworks including original oil paintings, watercolours and limited edition prints. The opening view will take place on Friday 1st December.
Chris’ work focuses on subjects that are heavily tattooed, mainly from the London rock scene, to create
paintings with a sexy edgy rock and roll aesthetic. The paintings are provocative yet inoffensive and accessible creating a unique signature style. This year has seen Chris exhibit in group exhibitions at The London Tattoo Convention, Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco and Palour Gallery in New York.
Since 2011 The Underdog has been an independently run and versatile gallery space located under one of the last remaining arches in London Bridge. The gallery exhibits and sells contemporary fine art, modern art, post-war pop art, urban / street art, sculpture and outsider art with a unique aesthetic. The venue also supports the artistic community, across genres, by hosting a variety of cultural events most nights of the week.
