Located in the heart of Fitzrovia, London, Gallery DIFFERENT presents contemporary painting, sculpture, drawing, print, photography and mixed media from BRITISH and INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS. As well as presenting a dynamic schedule of exhibitions and events, DIFFERENT collaborates with other galleries worldwide to promote and curate exhibitions for its artists.

In Parallel (March 27 – April 22)

In Parallel an exhibition of painting by London based Paul Lisak and photography by Iranian born Noushin Ourmazd who each draw on their unique talent and personal experience as they explore themes of identity within a context of religious, cultural, social and political tension.  Challenging, poignant and sometimes shocking, the artworks in the exhibition are courageous and honest expressions articulated by the two artists, an emotive match of art and comment.

PAUL LISAK  Through western figuration, chiaroscuro and oil paints, Paul Lisak explores Islam and its relationship with the modern multicultural world. He imposes his own view and understanding of the human condition, exploring religious, cultural and political tensions.

NOUSHIN OURMAZD  Through her lens she explores how Iranian society both confirms and denies the identity of the individual within a wider global political and socio-economic context.   Every detail of the image is important, providing the viewer with clues essential to Ourmazd’s powerful narrative.

My Point of View (February 21 – April 22)

‘My Point of View’ - An Exhibition of landscapes featuring painting by Paul Bennett, Denis Bowen, Garry Raymond-Pereira, Robin Richmond, Guy Portelli, Matt Small and photography by Julie Chamberlain.

Among all of the subjects that can be the focus for artists, for the viewer, landscapes are probably the most familiar and understood. In reality however landscape painting and drawing is as much a glimpse into the mind of the artist as any other subject. In this exhibition six artists who choose to work with landscape, each with a very different style and approach, give us their point of view.

Anthony Quinn - Solo Exhibition (May 22)

‘Anthony Quinn’s Eye’ An exhibition of sculpture and painting by the Oscar winning actor Anthony Quinn.  After more than 60 years of performing – on stage, for television and in films – a career that included the creation of truly classic characters in La Strada, Viva Zapata, Lust for Life, Lawrence of Arabia and Zorba the Greek – and as a recipient of 2 Academy Awards and 6 nominations – Anthony Quinn will always be remembered as the consummate actor.  His work as an artist is less well-known and this exhibition serves to highlight his extraordinary talent.
