'La Speranza',100 x 100 cm, oil on canvas, Cinzia Pellin
In a world increasingly dominated by media imagery, the rendering of portraiture has and is continuing to change. It is no longer a statement about the portrait subject immortalising their perceived place in the world. It is much more a statement by the artist both on the art of portraiture itself, and on concepts of beauty, identity, social acceptance, self image, social and political inequality and the role of celebrity.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Punk in the UK, PunkArt have put together 'The Class of '76', a mixed media exhibition of collage and prints featuring the first wave of bands that created what we now recognise as the last rebellion, where music and fashion youth culture collided. The groups featured in the show are the instigators of this movement. Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Damned, Siouxsie and The Banshees, The Buzzcocks, Generator X, and The Stranglers. Artist Mal-One's work has been pulled together for the first time for this show.
