The Roar of the Crowd

London 2018

“This show of works entitled The Roar of the Crowd, focuses on a rare mix of sport and art. Where some people visualise only a flag-waving, chanting mass of supporters, I see a strong arresting picture – a faceless sea of people acting as one. I love the flags and strong colours along with the supporters defined by their team or nation and the joy of their devotion. I have combined all of these sentiments in this impressionistic contemporary series. I really feel that I have now found my own handwriting through these works that I hope will reach out to a wide range of art lovers including sports fans.” Barry Laden
