Roger Watt exhibits latest works at Plus One Gallery
Plus One Gallery hosted an official opening show on Tuesday, September 20th to celebrate their relocation to Battersea Reach. The gallery's main focus is on the promotion of British and international contemporary hyperrealist art. The show displayed an amazing collection of works by many talented artists.
Folio was extremely pleased to hear that Roger Watt's illustrations of the underground were displayed in the opening show. Roger is a graphite artist who uses only pencil and paper to create photorealistic images. His illustrations, including those part of Going Underground, highlight his amazing technical competence and attention to detail.
The exhibition will run from the 21st of September - 15th October. Be sure to check it out and have a look at some awesome artwork!
Alexander Wells illustrates ESPN’s Pin King
Alexander Wells offers his bold and unique style to create thought-provoking images for ESPN’s story titled ‘Pin Kings’. Wells mixes digital and traditional mediums to produce striking images that are always sure to impress; and his work for ‘Pin Kings’ is proof of this!
‘Pin Kings’ is an unbelievable story about two childhood wrestling teammates, Kevin Pedersen and Alex DeCubas. The story follows Kevin, wrestler turned DEA agent, and Alex, wrestler turned drug smuggler, as they navigate a cocaine war from opposing sides.
The exciting twists and turns of the story are brought to life by the dramatic visuals expertly crafted by Wells. Wells describes his illustrations as dynamic, digital, and caffeinated, and that is exactly what we’d call his work for ‘Pin Kings’. Check out a few of his striking images below!
