James Dawson Exhibition

When: 28th Oct. – 31st Dec.
Where: Projekts Mcr
36-40 Edge Street, Northern quarter, Manchester.
Tel: 01618325677

James Dawson presents a series of recent paintings looking at small architectural spaces regularly visited by skateboarders around Manchester.

“When I began skateboarding I began to become more aware of my environment around me and to see the various possibilities of the city.”

Using the pallet and materials of graffiti art, the medium is turned on its head. By selecting a location where a graffiti artist may finally present his piece and like a more traditional landscape painter he works from drawings and photographs he makes at the location and takes them to his studio to be worked on further. In his work James questions the use of the urban environment and the different ways in which the spaces can be viewed and utilised.
