Vertical Gallery presents a special two artist exhibition from Copyright and Gemma Compton titled “Two Sides”. The Bristol, UK-based husband and wife will debut new individual works, as well as collaborative pieces. The exhibition runs March 2 – 23, 2019 with an opening reception with the artists on Saturday, March 2nd, 6:00-9:00pm.
Copyright has been fusing street art, graffiti and traditional painting styles for over 15 years. His paintings represent a contradiction of idealism and unattainable visions of beauty found in fashion, music and popular culture – often depicted by butterflies, flowers and beautiful women. Copyright is continuously experimenting and pushing his work forward, mixing new materials and techniques with his trademark style, with the resulting paintings being a unique blend of fine art and street art. In addition to exhibiting throughout Europe, he had a solo show at Vertical in 2016, and has participated in art fairs and several group shows with the gallery.
Gemma Compton explores the meaning of fragility, love, life and loss. Her work contains elements of graffiti, illustration and photo realism, creating a mix of styles that makes her art bold, beautiful and impactful. Her work has crossed from gallery walls to high street fashion labels, interiors and street art murals. Gemma has exhibited throughout the UK and internationally, including the Houses of Parliament in 2014.
