Liam's next exhibition of paintings, "Guinness and Spiders", opens Thursday 3 May 2018, in Hoxton (see cargocollective.com/liambuckley for more details). Liam paints and draws (and has designed one of the best scarves I've seen in ages, as featured in my homage drawing above).
What I love about Liam's art is that it is 'him'. His paintings and drawings feature people like David Bowie, The Beatles, Uncle Fester; compositions of interior scenes, which bring to mind early Hockney; food and drink, including McDonalds and Guinness; Picasso inspired shapes, colours, and figures; doodling not a million miles off Basquiat's.
Go see "Guinness and Spiders", while you can.
And now, here are Liam's song choices...
Liam's favourite hits:
1. 'Age of Consent' by New Order
2. Sound and Vision by David Bowie
3. Foggy Notion by The Velvet Underground
4. I Really Need Love by The Bees
