John Illsley from Dire Straits is also unveiling the artist’s proof of the painting which was featured on the 2008 album “Beautiful You”, an oil painting depicting a guitar on an abstract blue and white background. As well as this album cover, John is bringing nine other works, including two beautiful new abstract works called Puglia and Headland. Both Brian Travers and John Illsley have always had a passion for painting, both of them studying at art school before getting into music. However, the rigours of recording and touring stopped them from producing the works they wanted to. Since taking a bit of a step back from the music, they have been focusing on their art projects, producing a wide range of wonderful works and exhibiting all around the world. They now combine their art and music and their powerful album covers show just how these two creative pursuits can come together.
The exhibition will be launched with a glamourous, rock and roll opening party on Thursday 22nd of November from 20.30-22.30, and both artists will be flying in to attend the event. This is a wonderful chance to meet these legends and learn about their art, their inspiration and their long and successful careers in music.
The exhibition launch event is free to attend, but numbers are strictly limited and reservations are required. Please email email@example.com to reserve your place. Art lovers are welcome to pop in to the hotel at any time to enjoy these wonderful works until the 10th of January. They are located in the gallery space to the right of the entrance.
