art-delivery-pack.jpg

What a day at the Royal Academy for the Summer Exhibition Varnishing Day. 

This years exhibition is really something to behold. Grayson Perry has curated a fantastic exhibition for the 250th anniversary of the RA. The exhibition spans across two floors of the new RA and my piece is upstairs in the Sackler Galleries. 

It was a very special moment to see my piece on the wall of the RA for a second time and is certainly a day I will never forget.

Friday 10am – 10pm

If you're down in London this summer make sure you pop in and have a look! Its an astonishing show this year and the majority of the artworks in the summer show are for sale!
