COREY HELFORD GALLERY PROUDLY PRESENTS UK STREET ARTIST & ILLUSTRATOR ANDY COUNCIL "PARALLEL EVOLUTIONS"
OPENING RECEPTION: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 13TH Andy Council will debut ten new works for his first exhibition with Corey Helford Gallery, entitled "Parallel Evolutions". Based on his fascination with urban myths, beasts, dinosaurs and more, Council's vibrant and playful imagery will delightfully dominate the loft space. Council adds, "Mankind's creations often mirror those of natures. In my work manmade machines and cities are exaggerated and evolved further still into fantastical creatures and organic forms. This latest body of work has natural forms made up of common place human creations of the modern world that are often destructive to ourselves and the planet." Advance online previews are available upon request at firstname.lastname@example.org Best, Jan Corey Helford
I use my drawing skills and love of detail to create bizarrely
intricate collections of creatures; from rabbits made of tanks to
dinosaurs mobilized by ‘lots of stuff’. I was trained in the
traditional techniques of animation and drawing, becoming influenced
by Miyazaki and Geoff Darrow amongst others. I use a combination of
graphics, line drawing, ink and paint pen to create my beasts and I am
now assaulting windows and walls with my unique menagerie.
