‘Surreal Reality’ art exhibition by Greg Forster
‘Surreal Reality’ is an art exhibition by Greag Forster which will run between 4 May and 18 May 2021 at Chester Art Centre. The private view will be taking place on the 6th of May between 6 PM and 9 PM and we look forward to seeing you for some bright surrealism and wine! 🙂
Greg Forster graduated from Swansea Metropolian University in 1992, since then he has worked professionally as a London based freelance illustrator, and latterly in graphic design. Now based in his native North Wales, he uses the knowledge and skills acquired in those professions to shape his artistic vision.
His artwork is inspired by the events of his own personal experiences, personifying bizarre subjects in complex circumstance.
Greg has a keen interest in philosophy and sociology, and has always been fascinated by characteristics, key life events, and situations which compose the essence of human existence, such as growth, emotionality, aspiration, conflict, and mortality. These themes are often recurrent in his artwork and come from varying perspectives that include love and loss, hopes and fears, lust and power, and the meaning of life.
Working in a mix of contemporary mediums, such as acrylic paint, ink, spray paint, marker pen and pencil on paper, board and canvas, Greg has blended his skills in graphics and illustration with his love of bright colour and surrealism to bring about artwork that depicts life’s pleasures and predicaments in a surreal world. His use of bold colour in this surreal environment allows Greg to challenge the boundaries and explore his own obsessions.
