Exhibiting at The Hickman, Whitechapel

n January of this year I was commissioned by The Hickman in Whitechapel to exhibit several pieces from my Portrait of Heroes collection. I teamed up with Art Acumen, and one of the UK’s leading property management companies: Great Portland Estates (www.gpe.co.uk) to bring the exhibition to life. I created two original paintings for The Hickman, along with five limited edition prints. All of which have now been framed and are displayed in their shared working space.
