Dick Graham, London Bridge Hotel OPEN 3: Urban Nature

 

Dick Graham is one of 16 talented locally-based artists exhibiting at London Bridge Hotel OPEN 3: Urban Nature, a public art exhibition which runs until the end of May 2020. This marks the third such exhibition in a series originally launched by London Bridge Hotel General Manager, Julio Marques in 2019, conceived in partnership with Team London Bridge and Southwark Council.  All artworks are available for purchase.

About his work:

Foxes are regular visitors to Dick’s back garden. The ‘Fox in my garden’ lino-cut print is based on a drawing Dick did of a fox asleep in his garden one summer afternoon curled up and half hidden by shrubs.

About the artist:

Dick has lived in South East London all his life and in Nunhead for the past twenty two years. He happily left full time education at the age of 16 but pursued his interest in art into his early twenties but this largely lapsed due to work and family commitments. He returned to his art eight years ago and has since begun regularly exhibiting and selling work.

Apart from producing lino-cut prints and cards Dick also draws and paints. His main focus is on people, whether models in the studio or out and about in everyday surroundings such as cafes and shopping centres.

He is currently working on a series of pen and watercolour drawings of volunteers and clients at food banks in Southwark.  He is used to people looking over his shoulder at what he is doing and chatting about his work and life in general.

It is part of the pleasure of what he does.
