Forever in Focus: Tom Cox | The Shoreditch Collection

Alright Guys!

Focus LDN Blurb Below!

Here at Focus LDN we are commencing a new collaboration with Forever Beta, an independent creative and innovation agency, purpose built to drive rapid and dynamic growth, by championing local and global creative culture. Throughout 2019, we will be hosting a series of artist solo exhibitions at the Forever Beta studios - these Forever in Focus exhibitions will feature the most promising of our Focus LDN artists.

TOM COX | THE SHOREDITCH COLLECTION

An ink sketch of queues at the Old Truman Brewery - this will be oil painted for The Shoreditch Collection.

Our first exhibition will feature artist Tom Cox, a London local who is gaining rapid recognition for his paintings of our urban landscape. His paintings capture the character, nuance and physicality of life in the capital. Having featured in the Evening Standard, the Guardian and tipped as one to watch in 2019 by Artists & Illustrators Magazine, his popularity amongst collectors continues to grow.

With sights set on his upcoming exhibition in Shoreditch, Cox is out painting our East end, London’s technological heart and melting pot of creativity. Expect scenes of old boozers being moved in on by modern high rise developments, local gems and bustling Brick Lane. In just 4.5 weeks he has set himself the challenge to create nine unique new paintings.

His Shoreditch Collection will be unveiled for the first time on Thursday 11th April from 6-9pm at the Forever Beta studios in Shoreditch.

There will be free signed, limited edition giclee prints exclusively for the first 20 people to arrive on the evening, and complementary drinks. 10% of profits will go to the local Whitechapel mission, which helps the homeless with food, shelter, clothing and medical care.

Collectors Supperclub

tom cox marrakech.jpg

A few weeks ago I made a trip to Marrakech with a suitcase full of brushes, canvas and an easel. Over the following four days I explored the winding narrow lanes of the medina, the vibrant bustling souks, saw the raw pigments and immense colours which they use to dye clothing and so much more. The trip was incredibly enriching and each day I started a painting which I have now been working on back in my London studio.

This way of travelling and capturing the unique energies of other cities marks a broader approach to combining my love of travel and that of painting. This will be the first of many such trips where I go to gather source material and then distill the experiences back in my studio.

The four paintings which I am working on shall be exhibited for the first time to a small number of people on Wednesday 6th March. This evening also marks a new approach to engaging with my collectors and displaying my work.

I have teamed up with my good friend Oliver Soden, an incredible chef who organises sell out supper clubs across the city. Together we are offering a unique culinary experience to a limited number of 30 people. To see what we have in store on the evening check out the menu below.

Our Chef

Oliver Soden, spent his early career cooking classic cuisine in fine restaurants in London and Manchester, and went on to graduate with distinction from Le Cordon Bleu School of Culinary Arts. His food style is a mix of classic cooking techniques, lightened with liberal use of herbs and exotic ingredients borrowed from World Cuisine. A constantly evolving style that borrows from current trends for lighter cooking, with an emphasis on using less proteins and letting fruits and vegetables be the true heros of a dish.


The night will take place at Brother Marcus in Balham, a restaurant co-founded by my friend Arthur Campbell.

Tickets are £33 per head and we are limited to 30 places.

London Visions

LONDON VISIONS - A NEW PERSPECTIVE

Talk to anyone on the streets of London and you’ll inevitably discover a myriad of languages, cultures and beliefs. Despite fears of Brexit, and endless speculation over it’s consequences upon London and it’s inhabitants, there is still an engine of change going on all round us. It is a city full of surprises, not just the fixed fabric of the city; the buildings, streets, squares, but the people who come to the capital. Londoners are what makes the city what it is - a blend of cultures weaved together in a tapestry of almost nine million individuals. Despite the wealth in this capital, London also has an underlying darker side; of inequality, exploitation and outrage and revelations of it’s violent history with the blitz, bombings, rioting and towering infernos continues. 

London is a magnet attracting creative talents in film, theatre, music, literature and visual arts. It presents a broad canvas from which to be inspired from. Many artists have made London their canvas as a source of inspiration; Turner, Monet, Sisley and Whistler are a few who have found London as a inspiration over the centuries.

Eleven diverse artists are represented by the Leyden Gallery’s newest exhibition focussed on London and its people and reflect their individual responses on an ever evolving, developing city that is pushing it’s boundaries each day.

A River Runs Through It 2017

"This exhibition will showcase the breathtaking artworks of Urban Soup, a group of artists living in our city, bound by their love of the metropolis. Each artist offers their own distinctive interpretation of the city’s evolving environment using a variety of unusual mediums and materials in their work including:

Dazzling light installations; delicate paper sculptures; intricate cityscapes drawn with a biro; wafer-thin aluminium prints; reclaimed 1930’s windows, ultra-vivid HDR photographs; stunningly colourful acrylic cityscpaes, the finest impressionist oil paintings, and interactive art. Plus a fantastic selection of affordable prints to collect.    

This year’s artists include LoveJordan, the much sought-after duo who caused quite a stir with their recent sell-out show at the prestigious Woolff Gallery in Fitzrovia; Sarah Fosse whose art has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Vogue, and on the BBC; Michael Wallner, a former television producer who has exhibited world-wide including New York, Singapore, and Milan; Tom Cox, an exciting young artist tipped as ‘one to watch’ by the Evening Standard; and Munleen Sibia, a former county tennis player whose work has been featured in Vogue’s ‘World of Interiors’ and by Time Out.  

The Urban Soup artists live within 10 miles of each other, yet they see their surroundings in very different ways. We look forward to showing you how at gallery@oxo this September.  

A River Runs Through It (ARRTI) is proud to be part of the Totally Thames festival.

Unbound Exhibition

Espacio Gallery and The Artists' Pool presents a group of young artists making early transitions in their careers, encouraged to unleash their creativity on the world.

Creativity is a free spirit. It can be nurtured, supported, guided and developed. But it thrives best without restrictions and is at it's strongest without limitations; when all rules are relaxed, bindings are cut and obstacles removed, a visceral creative energy is allowed to flow freely and truly from the soul.
