Marcus Nelson - Scar Tissue

The Bomb Factory Art Foundation is pleased to present ‘Scar Tissue’, the debut solo exhibition by London-based artist Marcus Nelson. Nelson presents a series of large-scale paintings that explore the theme of mental ill health amongst young men, exacerbated by the pressures of trying to achieve the masculine ideal.
