Art & Style at Debut ContemporaryPosted by Styloko
A dazzling array of colour, texture, materials, and ideas assault your senses as you walk through the door of Debut Contemporary’s art lab in London’s Westbourne Grove. If you’re a fan of contemporary art, their Summer Exhibition Part II will not disappoint. We certainly weren’t when we dropped in for their private view last night.
From a sculpture of Amy Winehouse made of beads and pearls to an interactive typewriter on which you can offload bad memories, it’s a dynamic experience that reflects the rich variety of artists exhibiting.
Here are some of our favourite highlights from the exhibition, each image headed by the artist’s name.
The above sculpture of Amy Winehouse was created in 2008.
Meet the Artists
We also met a couple of the artists exhibiting last night – with our fashion head always on, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity of taking some style snaps!
‘I paint what I think not what I see. What I paint is a reflection of me and an expression of how I view the world’ is how Tahnee describes her perspective. Clearly, colour is her domain as she has such an instinctive sense of it.

Nicola Anthony’s work is inspired by language and words, amongst other ideas. Last night’s exhibit was an interactive work, with two beautiful performers dressed in black, wearing a wire sculpture that curved around them, on which were pinned hundreds of plain paper labels. Everyone was offered the chance to write something about themselves on one of the labels and pin it back to the frame. All the collected words will be used in an evolving text artwork as well as in some of Nicola’s sculptural pieces.
Living sculptures: the performers who were collecting people’s thoughts on paper. Find out more about this work from Nicola’s website.

We hate having to do this, but need's must. All the best umbrellas are right here: http://t.co/dWs3L4yFRQabout 1 week ago
This weather calls for some ankle boots (we can't handle wet toes!). http://t.co/jCojzEHdpoabout 1 week ago
