Marlene Dumas b 1953, South Africa. This extraordinary artist, famous for her figurative work, started her life in the wine farmlands of the Southern Cape. Attending Michaelis Art School in the 1970’s, she graduated with a degree in Fine Art.
Artists with an eye for the miniature will be showing at the ‘Well Hung Gallery‘ in Hoxton. Playing on the notion of surprise, scale and dimension. The artists are all well known for their use of space and positioning particularly through site specific street art and installation.
Whilst many artists on the street are all about going bigger. For some it’s about creating miniature scenes and going altogether smaller in scale. Most are of course known to us here on Inspiring City. With the likes of HIN and Pablo Delgado in particular having spent some years in London.
