Dick Graham is a local artist who has lived in South East London all his life. He works in charcoal, pastel, watercolour and also linocut and monoprinting. Bold lines are characteristic of Dick’s work. The main focus of his art is people, whether out and about or in the studio. He will be exhibiting two large charcoal drawings of male nudes. Dick finds drawing the human body a constant challenge but one that can be deeply satisfying and rewarding.
Dick finds inspiration in the work of such artists as Alice Neel and Kathe Kollwitz both for their depiction of the lives and struggles of ordinary people and for their political commitment.
