Warren King is a Belfast-raised artist living in West London, working primarily in acrylic paint, producing semi abstract landscapes and portraits. He studied at Medway Art School in Kent and in 2017 he was awarded a year long scholarship with SoFAP (the Society of Fulham Artists and Potters). He currently has paintings on display at The Waterside Gallery in Barnes. He is a member of Artists At Home and has recently shown his work at the Hogarth Club in Chiswick.
His exhibition at the Apothecary Gallery in Hammersmith is all about light – Divine Light: “I am fascinated by the ambiguity light creates when cast on a face or body, a landscape or urban setting. It can be subtle or dramatic and it can act as a bridge between the figurative and the abstract, the commonplace and the ethereal. As an artist, it is my aim to use light to subvert our understanding of the everyday. Light is the fundamental reference point I employ to convey a sense of spirituality or other-worldliness within my paintings.”
