The likes of Avery are a rare sight in London galleries these days. He's an artworld darling, despite his abstruse, unfashionable work. His practice never strays far from drawing - in fact, he was kicked out of St. Martin's for his refusal to put down the pencil. The tutors said, 'We want you to stop drawing because you know how to draw.' He never has.
This January, head to Pilar Corrias present The People and Things of Onomatopoeia: Part 2—the latest instalment of The Islanders. This fourth solo exhibition at the gallery brings together new drawings, including portraits, furniture, jewellery, posters, giving an insight into The Islander’s culture.
