Edward Haslam (b. 1988, British) studied Art History at the University of Manchester, and since graduating has concentrated on developing his figurative work. He is fascinated by the idea of realism, not the mimicry of nature, which he finds illusionary, but the heightened reality that illuminates the human figure. Artists such as Jenny Saville, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and Tai-Shan Schierenberg play a major part in shaping his aesthetic ideals. He recently exhibited at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters Exhibition (2013), Thompson’s Gallery (2013), and has had his work published in the book: The State of Art Representational and Abstract (2013)

David Shillinglaw (b. 1982, British) graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2002 and has exhibited in galleries in Japan, China, The Netherlands, and cities such as New York, London, Berlin and Istanbul. His work moves between street and studio, from small hand-made books to paintings on canvas and large-scale wall murals. He observes: “Life is a struggle. For everyone: from the smallest insect to the greatest beast, we are determined by the success we seek, and how, in turn we measure that success. Each of us experiencing ups and downs. Peaks and troughs. Like a game of snakes and ladders.” The screen print he produced for Something in the Attic was influenced by the space being used for the event and the journal drawings he does everyday: “the print is coded and poetic and at the same time obvious and illustrative”.
