Alexis Peskine’s large portraits looks at African Diaspora. The tones in the portrait were made by hammering gold leaf nails of different sizes with precision into stained wood. His portraits convey images of strength and perseverance which is much needed into today’s world. Other works on display were from renowned artists Romuald Hazoumè, Eddy Kamuanga Ilunga, whose works I’ve previously shared on my blog and new artists I recently discovered such as Cyrus Kabiru, LR Vandy and Cosmo Whyte. There was also works from Zak Ové , whose work I came across at the British museum some years back! The exhibition ends on 23rd November 2019.
