Gravesend Artist Selected for London Exhibition

Gravesend Artist Selected for London Exhibition

Local artist Stuart Dalzell has been selected to take part in a new art fair in London.

Grid Art Fair takes place next weekend close to Tate Modern in Southwark and shows the work of 50 carefully selected British and international artists.

Dalzell, who is a contemporary, abstract painter from Gravesend, will show two of his new paintings, which are both inspired by Glam Rock music of the 1970s and part of a bigger collection which will debut in July at the Blake Gallery in Gravesend.

The two paintings from the new collection called Icons – The Glam Rock Years, each stand at 5ft high by 4ft wide, are inspired by different Glam Rock albums respectively; Transformer by Lou Reed and Electric Warrior by T-Rex.

Opening on Friday 27 April, the event brings together collectors, artists and the general public, and holds regular shows throughout the year.

Dalzell has been painting for 20 years, but only exhibited his work publicly in 2001 in Canterbury.

All of Dalzell’s paintings from his past shows have sold to private buyers, including one piece to the famous Haskell art collection in the USA.

Since that time Stuart has continued to exhibit his work across the UK and created work for charity auctions held at Christies in London since 2003, helping raise funds for causes close to his heart.

It is free to attend the art fair on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 April. Private View spaces for Friday 27th April are available via the Grid Art Fair’s website.
