Hello Guys! This is the official invitation for the Opening to my next exhibition the Friday 24th of January at the White Rabbit time (125 Stoke Newington Church St N6 0UH )
This time.. like we say in Spain… it is time to trow the house by/trough the window! Which means! Get excited and do things that you woud or should not do!
Apart from the exhibition and complementary free drinks for everyone, I will prepare a few pieces and photos to Raffle so you can get some of my work almost for free!!
Why!!?? It is all for fun and for making things easier. Art shouldn't be only on galleries and for wealthy people..
As you might know this event and the series of Xpress Yourself are sponsored by Unite the Union! All in an effort to fight against Austerity. David Shakey will delight us with some words and the DJ Femme a Barbe add more fan to the night.
In addition! this time I will present two pictures of the series "Sexo en Nueva York" that got classified in the Desencaja Awards 2013 (Made by the Autonomic Government of Spain and that will show the series on the Archaeologic Museum of Almeria on February )
Please feel free to invite everyone to the opening.
The exhibition will be on till the 4th of March.
I look forward to seeing you all!

London based Studio 106 Art Gallery is proudly marking its fifth anniversary with an international exhibition - Castles in the Air. The exhibition is going to be held in the Centre of Contemporary Art Montenegro, in Podgorica, the capital of Montenegro. The Gallery will be celebrating works of two acclaimed British artists Caroline Cary and Jim Webb. Caroline has established links with Studio 106 Art Gallery over the years and for the first time outside the UK, Studio 106 Art Gallery will be presenting her new ground breaking project. The project consists of two parts; part one is paintings on canvas and paper, part two is a collaboration with Jim Webb, an Installation of laser light and transparent paintings on Perspex.
Studio 106 Art Gallery provides a platform to explore, create and present contemporary art and new forms of expression.
Free Painters and Sculptors came into existence in the early 1950's as a splinter group from the Institute of Contemporary Arts. It was initially a group of painters who wished to break free of the stereotype that the ICA wished to impose on its members, it attracted other members and became organised as on a charity and corporate basis.
FPS has always maintained high standards with strict selection procedures for its exhibitions at a variety of fine venues including the Mall Galleries, the Barbican, Bankside Gallery and many others.
In the 1970's FPS gained support from The Society for Protection of Animals Abroad which leased part of its premises to FPS for admin and exhibition purposes.
Applications for membership, subject to selection , are welcome. we are looking for new members who are practising artists, or people who are interested in art who would like to help support FPS through admin, organising and publicising exhibitions etc.
We provide exhibition opportunities annually for members at various venues, mostly around London, we also provide a website where members work can be shown and sold, a blog and a regular newsletter which both publish articles from members.
