Selected works by British artist Annie Kevans on show at Pertwee Anderson & Gold.
Since graduating from Central St. Martins in 2004, when Charles Saatchi bought her series of 30 paintings of dictators as young boys, Kevans has had solo exhibitions in New York, London, Vienna and Italy. She has exhibited at art fairs including Art Basel Miami and the Armory, where her portrayals of presidential mistresses left American audiences “mildly offended” but which provoked positive press coverage in Germany, Korea, the US, the UK and Brazil. Kevans will be featured in the much anticipated ‘Power of Paper’ exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery next year. She has been a finalist in the ‘Women of the Future’ awards and in the Jerwood Drawing Prize. Her work can be found in major collections including the David Roberts Collection, 21c Museum, the Saatchi Collection and the collections of Lord Rothermere, Marc Quinn, Adam Sender, Beth Rudin de Woody, John McEnroe, and Marion & Guy Naggar.
