Lights of Soho, London’s leading light-art gallery, is proud to announce its latest exhibition, a collection of canvas and neon artworks by Anna Laurini.
Anna Laurini is one of the leading female artists ‘bringing life to the streets’. Her signature faces are unmissable across London. Drawing inspiration from her own creative pulse alongside her experiences in the big city, Laurini never needs to look too far to find stimulation to create her profoundly expressive and thought provoking art. Her abstract pieces are peppered with visceral splendour, showcasing her own unique take on the form.
Using art as a vehicle to stimulate the subconscious and evoke the senses, Anna Lauriniʼs art encourages oneself to think outwardly, whilst keeping an ear open to one’s inner emotions. Inspired by the backdrop of the city skyline, motivated by the tides of her ebbing impulse, Annaʼs work is ever more engaging and thought-provoking.
For 6 weeks at Lights of Soho, Anna’s creations will depict the vibrancy and the energies of the area, from the streets of Soho to the gallery. She will be using neon for the first time to emphasise her art work, bringing her pieces of art to life.
Remarking on her debut neon collection Laurini says:
“I am absolutely thrilled to be exhibiting my work in what I feel is London’s cultural Hub, Soho. It reminds me a little of NYC, the mix of styles and cultures from around the world, representing true diversity. Soho is where I feel I can truly express myself to the fullest, painting the streets and leaving my mark as I wander. To be exhibiting at Lights of Soho is a great pleasure, a place where it dedicates to keeping the soulful spirit of Soho alive.”
Hamish Jenkinson, Curator at Lights of Soho, said
“Anna Laurini has taken the technique of cubism and infused it with new meaning, giving the figures she portrays, life. Her Picasso-esque style of painting has become iconic in London as she has succeeded in painting nearly every street corner with her characterful faces. Anna is incredibly dedicated to her work and we are proud to host this prolific artist at Lights of Soho. This is a great opportunity for collectors to buy artworks from an artist that is about to rocket sky-high.”
“Profiles” will be available to view from 24th January to 11 March 2017 at Lights of Soho. All pieces on display at the exhibition will be available to purchase, with prices ranging from bespoke and hand drawn one of a kind pieces from £60-180, to canvases from £1800 – £3600 and neon’s starting from £4500.
