Artist friends reunited...

In a prelude to the exhibition I will be a part of next year (with my very talented and dear old friends), I wanted to share our lovely little press release ready to be shared far and wide....and a piece of my work related from the archives of Paperfig (as I am in the midst of producing the work for the exhibition!). Thanks to lovely Panna Parmar for creating this enticing write-up. And I hope you will all put the private view date in your diaries now and pop along before you engage yourselves with your romantic affairs or avoiding it like the plague....We will be sure to make it worth your while! :

Hello? I Love you?
Forthcoming exhibition at House Gallery, Camberwell

Ten years after graduating from Norwich School of Art, five artists specialising in print making, painting and illustration have come together to give you their take on the L word. Hello? I love you? Is an exhibition of work by artists Stephen Hennessy, Matthew Gent, Panna Parmar, Jhinuk Sarkar and Samuel Potts at the House Gallery in South East London. Since graduating, illustrator Jhinuk Sarkar has exhibited and taken part in residencies around the world. Yorkshire born, Samuel Potts specialises in portraiture commissions and regularly exhibits in the UK. Printmaker Matthew Gent creates detailed limited edition woodcuts as one off gig posters and gallery commission pieces. Stephen Hennessy is a painter who transforms his observations from his travels into paintings and exhibits internationally. Panna Parmar has exhibited her colourful screen prints and etchings in London. Coming together, these very different artists will offer their take on what the Beatles may say is all you need; Love.

Heart of Glass by Jhinuk Sarkar

The exhibition starts on February 14th 2014 for two weeks at the House Gallery in Camberwell.
Private View will be held at the gallery from 7pm on Thursday 14th February 2014.

The Illustrated Type

I do love a good letter, handwritten, from a typewriter and even from my old mac.

Over the years I've developed a typeface of my own called 'Paperfig Alphabet' which creeps into my illustrations a lot:

You can see a snapshot of my other illustrated typographic work here but keep looking at this section over the coming weeks as I add more samples I have been working on, themed by the impending festive season and by my local borough of Waltham Forest's heritage....thanks!

Did I mention....?

.......that I also plan, create, organise and deliver illustration workshops? They are not strictly illustration in the sense of sitting people down and making them draw with pencil and paper, I like to get people involved and show off how versatile illustration can be!

Take a look at the illustration workshops page on my website to find out more.

And if you have an idea for a workshop or you'd like to get in touch and find out more about how I can work these into different creative settings, please feel free to contact me.

Thanks, Jhinuk
