Visually Literate 2


Drinks and preview 16 January 2018 630pm – 830pm

16-20th January 2018 11-6pm
Saturday 20th Jan until 430pm

at The Meunièr Gallery 51 Southwark Street , London SE1 1RU



























KAOS artists and a few others including Myself present : Visually Literate 2.

59 artists present a large and small artwork (small means no larger than A3).

59 writers are asked to write their response to these pieces without knowing
the title or the artist .

We have also produced a book showing the art and writing together which I am sure will make interesting reading. It’s available for sale as are the artworks.

Art and words from both sides of the “creativity fence ” will be hung together
in what will be a very interesting collaboration .

A Post Christmas feast for the eyes and mind.

Nicholas Gentilli One Man Show April 2017

Posted on June 12, 2017

Thanks everyone that helped make my exhibition  possible from framers to delivery people and hangers /installers . It was great to be showing in the South of France – rather humbled to be not far from Chagall, Leger, Picasso and Matisse museums….well it’s a start anyway ! Big thanks to the team at La Coupole for making this possible.

Crates ready to ship to France for one man show in April

Posted on April 10, 2017

After a very busy month and mad printing and getting everything ready , I hop the picturesfit into my custom built crates!


If they don’t then my “one man show” in La Gaude, France is likely to be a just a “show”  because I am not going! I have to say I think what’s in the crates is worth it!

It will be good to get some space. At least pre Brexit there’s no customs work to be done.

Gloucester Road, Bristol – meet “Babel”

Posted on November 12, 2016

So, finally, after nearly a year I managed to work out this wonderful textured ” imagined place”. I guess what finally gave me the idea was printing it onto textured paper.

The building comes from the Gloucester Road in Bristol . An eclectic mix of different owner occupied shops in a funky Bristol street. Nestling in this street is this abandoned building and I have been going past it on and off for the last few years and it never seemed to be any nearer to getting redeveloped! Luckily. I love the smokiness of this building in this image and the way it wafts upwards.

Churches of West Sussex

Posted on October 21, 2016

Captivated by these old English churches, I am doing a series of black and white images on them. They will be quite small and with wonderful tones and detail, I hope that they will resonate with many people fond of our architectural heritage. Nestling in the South Downs National Park, Barlavington Church is a real gem with fabulous views over the downs.  Keep your eyes peeled for further examples as i capture them and these will be available in my open studios show coming up on November 11th at Wimbledon Art Studios .
