Houdini by Ben Edge

The Leyden Gallery in London currently has a display called "Contemporary Folklore" featuring paintings by artists Ben Edge and Ben Clarke, both London-based figurative painters. Among Ben Edge's series of "outsider figures" is Houdini.

"Ben Edge makes paintings, which commemorate, and celebrate the extraordinary lives of those he considers as unsung heroes. Within each of his portraits he intends to present the viewer with a critical and psychological insight into a unique human story, through recurring themes such as masculinity and the artistic impulse."

"Houdini" by Ben Edge will be on display at The Leyden Gallery through April 25. You can get more information at the official website.
