Print Project Space: Royal Academicians in Focus

A new exhibition at the Alan Cristea Gallery celebrates the recent work of Royal Academicians, contemporary British artists who are members of the Royal Academy of Arts, London.

The display will include the first UK showing of a new series of five woodcuts with fabric collage by Yinka Shonibare MBE. Each work in Cowboy Angels, 2017, (pictured) Shonibare’s first project with the Alan Cristea Gallery, depicts a winged cowboy whose face is concealed by an African ritual mask. These cowboy ‘angels’ – classic heroes in Western mythology - are an amalgam of cross-national references and religious iconography, which reflect the artist’s own personal history and which he uses to question issues of mixed, and often complex, national and cultural identities.
