A Fine Impression
Cass Fine Art alumnus Trevor Banthorpe has been selected to exhibit at The Other Art Fair at Ambika P3 in the heart of London's Marylebone. He will be debuting a new series of Vista woodblock prints at the fair.
Trevor is an artist whose printmaking practice draws equally from his interest in modern technology and his passion for the ancient craft of the woodblock print. Each print starts its journey as a photograph taken on his mobile phone. The fact that they are so instant and disposable is central to his practice, for they are a celebration of the ordinary; the mundane scenes of everyday life that we take for granted. In the analogue age we were much more selective about the photographs we shot, for they were both limited in number, and lasting; they would physically exist
After graduating from BA Fine Art ,where he studied printmaking under the late David Skingle, Trevor was a recipient of the annual Vice Chancellor's purchase prize- and a series of his woodblock prints presently hangs in the London Metropolitan University Vice Chancellor's office.
The Other Art Fair represents one of the most exciting opportunities in the art buying market, for art lovers and collectors to buy art direct from 100 of the best unrepresented artists in the UK and abroad. You will find Trevoron Stand number 16.
Running from 24 - 27 April, Ambika P3 is situated opposite the famous Madame Tussauds in Marylebone Road, and within a 5 minute walk from Baker Street underground station.
