Born in France, lives and works in London. In his sculpture he experiments with new materials, such as Jesmonite, a combination of plaster an acrylic, that in his recent work has been used to make a series of sculptures with a dual function as radiators.
22.09.17, 19.00: Oliver Osborne
Born in Edinburgh, lives and works in Berlin. In his work he uses painting as a found image, working across different languages, scales and materials to make new painting.
