Walton Fine Arts is hosting an exhibition of American artist Robert Indiana (1928-present) from September 19 until October 31. Indiana was a prominent figure during the 1960s Pop Art movement, alongside Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. In his work he explores the concept of American identity, using the power of language and abstract techniques. His most well-known work is the iconic LOVE series, sculptures of which can be found in cities across the world including Tokyo and Israel. The exhibition at the gallery will run alongside the world’s first retrospective of Indiana’s work at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, and will offer London art lovers and collectors the chance to view and purchase a selection of his works.
Street artist, political activist, film director, and painter Banksy needs no introduction – he’s a true legend and one of the most influential artistic personalities to have ever come out of the UK.
Bambi’s quotations and reputation within the art world have been steadily on the rise, and with A-list celebrities collectors such as Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Rihanna, Adele, Robbie Williams and Harry Styles (just to name a few) she seems to be on her way to becoming the next street art big thing.
Dubbed ‘The female Banksy’, her graffiti technique is similar to Banksy’s, as is her use of popular icons as subject matter for her artworks (from David Beckham to Amy Winehouse, from Usain Bolt to the Pope). Likewise, her identity is kept under wraps.
