The fantastic venue will be showcasing a range of exciting styles over the coming months throughout its meeting rooms and office space. The paintings will be available to buy and the it is hoped the changing nature of the exhibitions will inject energy into the workplace, creating a dynamic and stimulating environment.
Art is a subjective topic and changing the works regularly will enable 20 Cavendish Square to cater for a range of tastes. It will provide the opportunity for staff and visitors to enjoy gallery quality art at work, encouraging people to share their opinions, promoting conversation and communication.
Cassandra Henry conference & internal manager, at 20 Cavendish Square, said: “This is an exciting opportunity to give emerging artists a platform whilst also having a positive impact on our space.”
The first artist to be exhibited at 20 Cavendish Square is Mark Fisher. Originally from Canterbury, Mark now works from him studio in Sedlescombe, East Sussex. He was taught to draw and paint from an early age by his mother, winning his first art competition at the young age of 16.
Mark’s collection of London cityscapes, are painted in a distinctive, representational style. Inspired by artists such as J.M.W Turner and Kurt Jackson, he is interested not only in the landscape but in the architecture that sits within it. Using deliberate brushwork, Mark builds the city in horizontal and vertical lines from high view-points to deliver an atmospheric body of work.
20 Cavendish Square is working with Little Van Gogh to bring these changing exhibitions to their London office.
Chloé Adams, director of Little Van Gogh, which works with artists all over Europe exhibiting 7,000 pieces of art internationally, said: “We are delighted to be showcasing our artists with 20 Cavendish Square.
