Jealous are thrilled to present ‘FAMOUS’ the British debut solo exhibition by contemporary Canadian artist Teddy Sue. The show will display a new portfolio of mono-print works which examine the impact of celebritisim on society; exploring the power of image, playfully walking the line between kitsch and critique.

The exhibition will present a series of unique mono-prints, a process which requires very quick action, as the artist applies the ink in vigour, working quickly before the ink dries. Despite their loosely crafted and energetic form, the iconic representations are clearly recognisable. Teddy Sue boldly renders images of major cultural and political figures, deconstructing the facial compositions and reducing the portraits into freely applied abstract expressionistic marks of vibrant colours. This medium provides the artist with immediacy between his vision and production, with the highly saturated palette, intensifying the spectacle of the image.
The exhibition opens at Jealous East on Thursday 31st January and ends on 10th February 2019, with the Private View on 31st January 2019 from 6.30-8.30pm.
