Born in Singapore, raised in London, Perry's (°1999, Singapore, SG) practice revolves around exploration. Through color theory, abstraction and a style that somewhat resembles Pop Art, the artist uses his canvases as a way to explore themes such as gender, mental health and relationships that are deeply embedded in his life experiences. Brightly colored canvases contrast with such profound subjects addressed by the artist. Lawrence Perry now works out of his Camden studio after graduating from the Slade School of Fine Art. Lawrence first came to the public eye in 2016 when his work as an in-house artist for an anti-Brexit lobbyist group was picked up by British GQ. He has gone on to have solo shows including ‘Merely A Dream” in Covent Garden and been noted by Hunger magazine as “one of the most promising artists of the moment”, with collectors including Paul Weller of The Jam. His work has since featured in Alessandro Michele’s campaign for Gucci, “Gucci, The Ritual”. Lawrence is establishing himself as part of the next generation of British Pop Art, having been mentored by the late great artist, Duggie Fields.
