4 artists 4 texts 4 solo shows 4 Wednesday night openings in August

This August Sartorial Contemporary Art gives four artists their own four day solo show. On each of the four Wednesday evenings in August you are invited to an opening by a different artist. Each artist has been given free reign of the gallery and a prominent journalist or critic has written 444 words about them.

4 x 4 was conceived by artist and curator Harry Pye with four aims in mind:

1: To give four artists complete freedom to exhibit whatever they like.
2: To match each artist with a highly respected art critic/journalist willing to write 444 words about them.
3: To make a Ltd edition package of four A4 prints (one from each artist) for only £44.44
4: To have four great opening nights in August, drink lots of Brahma Beer, and have fun.

His new work mates the glowing interior light of his earlier spray paintings to the more visceral medium of oil paint and the instant imagery of the everyday. Often the paintings are split by abstract monochromatic colour as though painted by twins. He has exhibited widely including a solo show at The Saatchi Gallery in 2002.
