'BIG PAINTINGS' - Pop culture, Johnny Cash, Betty Boo and road movies

Ashby de la Zouch-born artist Will Crawshaw is holding his second London show in the space of a year, with co-artist Luke Bevan, who together formed Blew Piranha, a multi-disciplinary arts company, to promote their combined creative talents.

Following the success of their Spring Show entitled 'Colourfield Culture', their second show 'Big Paintings' is being staged in The Vault at The Foundry public house in London's EC2 district. The show runs from Tuesday 18 November to Sunday 30 November. There is a 'Non Private View' on the evening of Saturday 29 November.

The Foundry is a popular venue for artists and musicians, and generously offers the facility for artists to display work that has not been previously shown to the public.

The latest exhibition will feature new works from both artists including a series of 'man in black' studies of Johnny Cash; singer Gram Parsons; Betty Boo and Jack Kerouac as well as a number of paintings inspired by the idea of the 'road movies'.

Will and Luke met on the same art, design and media course at Portsmouth University where they created their first collaborative painting. They have been working together on projects for the past six years, exchanging ideas and images and working within the same theoretical fields, each from their own individual aesthetic starting point.
