Hugh Mendes: A Retrospective: It was 20 years ago today…




CHARLIE SMITH LONDON presents a Hugh Mendes retrospective exhibition at The Truman Brewery in Brick Lane, London. Consisting of over 100 paintings and spanning 20 years of work, the exhibition will provide a fascinating overview of Mendes’ career. Mendes is known for political and obituary paintings, where he adopts the visual language of newspapers and renders in trompe l’oeil.

The day of 9/11 in 2001 was a significant one for Mendes, the events of which came to fundamentally inform his practice. Timed to coincide with the 20th anniversary of that fateful day, Mendes will also conduct a ‘Meditation for Peace’ at 2pm on September 11th.
