Albert Willem - Chaos in the City
Mon-Fri: 10-6pm; Sat: 11-5pm
‘I do not strive for perfection, on the contrary, I try to avoid it because otherwise it undermines the humour.’ - Albert Willem
Willem has experimented with a variety of mediums and styles over the years, from nail polish and spray paint to textile art. Today, the artist primarily works with acrylic coupled with a high gloss varnish, finding that these result in the strongest colours. He enjoys creating large scale works, as not only do they appear abstract from a distance, but they also give him the space to build up the multitude of small figures.
From racetracks to riots, train platforms to cycling races, CHAOS IN THE CITY paints a light-hearted, ironic overview of contemporary society.
