Sensation Modern International Artists Group Exhibition at London West Bank Gallery

Anthony John Gray
Russian Art Collector Sophie Dare, Founder of Sensation Modern, has spent over 9 months to carefully selecting and sourcing eclectic pieces of art, which now culminates in this Event. We have endeavoured to present a collective exhibition, showing works by both established and up and coming international artists.

Rather than host a conventional art exhibition, we have created an atmosphere which is both informal and engaging. Emulating the “Art Salon Style” of the Belle Époque and 1930’s Berlin, in which art can evolve and rejuvenate, thus creating a new platform for innovative ideas.

Anthony Gray’s collage-like juxtapositions, which often seem to endow women with power and enigma, fuse structure and the search for the ultimate freedom into a form that emanates from a place beyond subconscious production. We are also inordinately proud to be able to announce that Anthony will personally be launching his comprehensive book, which includes all of his major works and also many unseen works to date, created during a career spanning over 45 years.

Jeremy Baldocchi
Never before shown works by the late Russian artist Anatoly Zverev, will be on display at the exhibition. A member of the nonconformist movement and a founder of Russian Expressionism in the 1960s, Zverev was persecuted by the Soviet authorities and his first exhibition in Russia did not take place, until shortly before his early death in 1986.

It is noteworthy that one of his greatest admirers was Pablo Picasso himself.  Bob Allen, an internationally acclaimed contemporary sculptor, is one of the many featured artists at the event alongside Julius Lewandowski. The Polish born artist, noted for his unconventional approach to portraiture, inspired by the painters of the Ancien Regime and the libertinesque writers of Europe, with his very own and personal interpretation, which catapults his works firmly into the 21st Century. His somewhat intoxicating images of an erotic and sometimes even sexual nature are provocative with that understated hint of satire.

Kate Thomas
