Sartorial Contemporary Art will present Supergraphic a show of three outstanding new artists. They are the painting and printmaking equivalent of watching an episode of CSI or a Paul Verhoeven film. You see things that make you squirm and feel a little queasy, but you can’t look away as the knife crunches through bone with all the super graphic beauty that computers can generate.
James Unsworth combines an intense graphic beauty with disquieting scenes of murder, sex, and other mayhem, a nod to Bosch and a bash in the face.
James Unsworth graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2006 and has exhibited widely since, including a solo exhibition at Raw Art Gallery, his work has been featured in Dazed and Confused magazine and The Independent newspaper.

Check out this great post from Slam X Hype about James, one of our artists that you will be able to see/buy some of his new works, in the up-and-coming “Fresh Paint” art fair.
James Unsworth solo exhibition at the Crimes Town gallery presents images which show a world where shit eating greedy scumbags, elderly transsexual page three models, faded glamour and popular culture all share the same space. Within these images the artist questions current ideas of taste, beauty, attraction, highness and lowness.

James Unsworth will show his newest drawings at the Vegas Gallery in London.
Influenced by Daniel Johnston, James’ work presents a grotesque and precisely detailed picture of a dark world all of us have visited but are scared to dwell upon let alone talk about, in order to preserve our own sanity. Many of his works are centred on a sexually obsessive honesty that captivates the viewer in its brazen delivery.

The biggest ever museum-scale privately curated exhibition for breaking artists. Curators Zavier Ellis and Simon Rumley have now announced the full list of artists set to exhibit in the Old Truman Brewery’s Atlantis Gallery, in what promises to be a seminal show in the future of art history. Ellis and Rumley have selected the best of what they describe as The New London School – artists whose work deals with the human condition in painting, video and installation, underpinned by an emphasis on technical expertise.
Featuring the art stars of the moment, The Future Can Wait will be bigger than anything of its kind that has gone before. It will also offer a contrast to the more limited viewing context of the art fair booth system by showing a wealth of work as it was originally intended – in a spectacular, spacious environment. Featuring these London-based artists for its inaugural year, The Future Can Wait will eventually take on global partners to become a primary showcase for international artists.
