The Horrors frontman Faris Badwan is preparing to put his art on display in a new exhibition in London.
The British rocker, a former student of the U.K.'s prestigious St. Martin's College of Art, will stage Creatures in Colour: Sketchbooks from Faris Badwan at The Strand Gallery, a Proud Galleries venue, from 18 to 30 September (12).
He says, "The Creatures in Colour will be compiled from sketchbooks I've been keeping over the past couple of years. I draw all the time and as a result the books end up documenting everything. Aside from the visual diary aspect, Proud Gallery will be exhibiting new unseen paintings and drawings more focused around colour and technique. There were ideas in the last exhibition that I wanted to develop and expand upon, and a lot of the mark-making in the new work is more expressive and intense."
The pieces will include ink drawings, watercolour and acrylics and large scale reworkings of older creations.
