Stephen Price
Lives & Works in Birmingham, United Kingdom
Drawing upon both his personal journey and photographic sources, Italian-born artist of Ghanaian origin Stephen Price explores the nuanced terrain of Black memories. Employing charcoal and vibrant, glossy paint, Price depicts enigmatic space-times in which faceless Black figures seem to float. Like half-presences in a surreal world, his silhouettes seem detached from reality, yet bear an awareness of their potent, almost haunting impact on the observer's gaze. As if immersed in a liminal nature, Price’s figures evoke the nostalgic aura of old photographs discovered in old cardboard boxes: weathered by time yet imbued with captivating allure

Price holds a BA in Fine Art Painting and Drawing from the University of Northampton. His work will be included in Echoes of the Unseen, Galerie REVEL, Bordeaux, later this year. This follows a solo exhibition that took place at Bwo Art Gallery, Douala, entitled I Wish I Could Be the Moonlight earlier this year. Among several group exhibitions last year, he had a solo exhibition in London at Chili Art Projects entitled Reverie.

Stephen Price will be presented by Galerie REVEL.
