LEWES artist Dan Johnson is making a splash in West London, having been taken on by Debut Contemporary.
His collages and paintings are being showcased in its Notting Hill Gallery, and he has been asked to contribute to its forthcoming international Olympic exhibition.
Debut Contemporary is a mentoring scheme for talented artists who need to improve their profile and business skills in the art world.
Dan was found online by the gallery’s talent scouts, who recognised the quality of his collages and paintings, and, after interviewing him, he was welcomed into the Debut fold.
Dan runs a screen printing studio in Lewes called Another Fine Mesh, where he produces T-shirts, art prints and posters for many local, and national clients, but his true love has always been fine art.
This new platform will provide the springboard he’s been needing to move this passion to the next level.
Dan’s work can now be seen online at Debutcotemporary.com as well as on the walls of the gallery in Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill.
In the past Dan has exhibited widely around Brighton and Lewes, alongside the likes of Banksy, James Cauty and Anthony Micallef, but this new exposure and connection to such a powerful force in the art world is priceless, he says.
