A group of talented young artists from Girton are exhibiting their work at Cambridge Artworks Gallery as part of the Circuit Cambridge project.
Beyond the Brick is a group exhibition including work by Kyle Warwick, Jamie O’Brien, Kienan Naylor and Kieran O’Brien.
The group, whose practices range from photography to screen printing and tattoo art, are aged between 16 and 24. As members of the Girton Youth Project, they have spent the past four months preparing for the Beyond The Brick exhibition. The group describe the main body of work as ‘urban art’ – art inspired by street youth culture and created using screen printing, painting, graffiti, tattooing, video and photography.
The young artists have not taken the usual educational route into their creative practices. Instead they have found inspiration from the rest of the world, their connection being through street art, urban art, culture and graffiti.
The artists: Kyle Warwick, Jamie O’Brien, Kienan Naylor and Kieran O’Brien. The project is curated by artist and former Circuit Cambridge member, Jack Cornell.
Circuit Cambridge is the young people’s programme at Wysing Arts Centre & Kettle’s Yard.
