Damian Showyin works primarily in painting and drawing, often creating abstract compositions based on the motif of the grid. These works evoke architectural drawings, urban environments or code, arranged sensitively in blocks of colour.

The delicate bird drawings displayed here reveal another side to Damian’s practice, a sensibility also shown in his contributions to Bird Life Jungle Disco and to his work in textiles, weaving and sculpture.
