Multimedia artist Rupert Shrive is has an exhibition coming up in May. Shrive has exhibited in London, Paris, Milan, Madrid, Brussels and Hong Kong. His installation at the Courtauld East Wing, 2011 – 2012 was inspired by Goya’s Sleep of Reason and his monumental rendition of the seven deadly sins was exhibited in the Grand Palais, Paris in 2010. He has come along way from his six year old self, when his path as an artist started when he copied Renaissance painters from a book his mother gave him. “I did a version of Paolo Uccello’s Saint George and the Dragon in coloured pencils,” he remembers. He went on to achieve a degree in fine art from St Martins School of Art and has won many awards.
