Tomorrow we open Douglas Gray's latest Solo Exhibition: The Modern City.
An exhibition that celebrates the famous and hidden views of the greatest modern cities of the world.
Painter Douglas Gray was born in 1965 in Harrogate. Initially working as an illustrator, Gray experienced great success with notable clients including Saatchi & Saatchi, Waner Brothers, and Universal Studios. Since shifting his focus to oil painting, Douglas won a number of awards for his talent and vision, attracting the attention of commissioners like the Savoy Hotel in London where his works are permanently displayed.
Douglas Gray's painting style reflects his background in illustration, exhibiting the artist's solid foundations in drawing and developed narrative. The artist enjoys layering his pictures with visual complexity, like his signature window panes reflecting a strong amount of detail from the outside world over top of a figure sat within an equally detailed interior scene. Gray has become known for this incredible ability to synthesize vision, thought and emotion simultaneously into a single painted image, all the while keeping viewers guessing at the full story behind each scenario. Collectors of Douglas's unique paintings include The Right Honourable William Hague, Lord Derwent, the Howard de Walden family, George Davis, and the Fairmont Group (Savoy Hotel).
The Exhibition opens tomorrow and runs until the 13th April 2019.
