  • Piers Alsop

    Piers Alsop’s unique approach to painting often exhibits the co-existence of different styles and techniques on the same canvas. He enjoys the spectrum of realism pervading through to the abstract, producing a montage aesthetic that does away with traditional perspective. At times it calls to mind prop facades from a stage production. He regularly takes compositional elements from Byzantine or Renaissance religious paintings and pares them down to their most basic shapes before applying vivid colour. The more representational components appear as though they are invading these colour vacuums, contaminating them with narrative.

    Piers Alsop Biography

    Piers Alsop (b. 1984, London) studied Fine Art at UAL: Camberwell College of Arts, graduating in 2007. He exhibited around the U.K before pursuing a career in film, eventually returning to painting in 2018 when he was selected to show in the 250th anniversary of the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Piers' approach to painting often exhibits the co-existence of different styles and techniques on the same canvas. He enjoys the spectrum of realism that pervades through to the abstract, producing a montage aesthetic that does away with traditional perspective. At times it calls to mind prop facades from a stage production.

  • Hugo Lami

    Hugo Lami’s work will invite the fair’s visitors to contemplate the digital and virtual absurdity of contemporary culture, evoking our social dependency on technological devices and social media. The body of works we present at the fair investigates the hardware of our technological evolution by fusing concepts and objects, while displacing them in time. In this vein, the works create innovative narratives of possible Utopian and Dystopian futures that could quite easily become reality. Hugo's work unfolds across painting, sculpture, multimedia installation, performance, and most recently into Digital art via an Augmented Reality app that expands physical paintings into virtual sculpture.

  • ‘I research the impact of technology in our society, firstly to keep myself attached to reality, but with the purpose of hopefully reminding people that the devices we use are tools and that they must be used by us, rather than let ourselves be used by them.'

  • Hugo Lami Biography

    Hugo Lami’s work peers into the digital and virtual absurdity of contemporary culture, evoking our social dependency on technological devices and social media. His paintings portray editable environments of 3D construction software, with the purpose of re-embodying virtual tools. The sculptures and installations, on the other hand, investigate the hardware of our technological evolution and by fusing concepts and objects, while displacing them in time, the works create innovative narratives of possible Utopian and Dystopian futures that could quite easily become a reality. Lami says: ‘I love technology, but I also hate it. Every new device gives me hope that maybe that’s the one that is going to change my life. It never is.’
