Crisis artists’ work selected for Without Walls exhibition hosted by The Guardian
Crisis artists have been invited to showcase their work at the Without Walls exhibition at The Guardian offices throughout August.
Without Walls will exhibit art by homeless and formerly homeless people. The exhibition is hosted by The Guardian in partnership with St Mungo’s and community arts projects Homeless Diamonds and Café Art.
Twelve Crisis Skylight London clients submitted their work online to the Without Walls committee which selected five pieces to feature in the exhibition – each piece showcasing the artist’s unique style. The curators of the exhibition were impressed by all of the submissions, including one stand out piece from Ismail Hoca, pictured. Ismail has developed his own print technique using masking tape to create stencils.
Crisis Skylight centres provide a critical link with the wider community, both through volunteer tutors, and the links that Crisis fosters with a range of arts and education organisations.
Paula Lonergan, Creative Arts Manager at Crisis Skylight London said: “Crisis Skylight centres use art to help transform lives of Crisis members, offering a dynamic programme of art classes where members are encouraged to submit work to include in Crisis and external exhibitions”
The exhibition will feature around 30 artists using a range of media in an un themed exhibition - where artists are free to express their artistic style and individuality.
The exhibition will run from Monday 6 August until Thursday 30 August. Admission is free and the exhibition will be open from 10 am until 6 pm at the Guardian Foyer in Kings Cross. For further details visit St Mungo’s.
