Miranda Donovan’s solo exhibition

Lazarides Gallery presents the first solo show by young British painter, Miranda Donovan. Donovan’s unique work fuses an interest in the techniques and outlook of street and urban artists with a dedication to the possibilities and practice of painting. For her Lazarides exhibition, Donovan will present over twenty paintings from five new series of works.

Donovan fits within the urban art scene in a line via Banksy to Basquiat, and brings to it a new approach based in her interest in the possibilities of the painted space and the historic works of Anthony Tapies and Jacob van Ruisdael. Donovan was born in 1979 and grew up in Holland and London. She studied art in France at the École des Beaux Arts in Aix en Provence and at the City and Guilds School of Art in London.

Lazarides Gallery | 8 Greek Street | London
