I've just discovered the work of Russell Loughlan and I'm smitten! Loughlan exhibited recently at the interesting"Tales From a Park Bench" installation in Camden and seems to be acquiring quite a following in the UK. His work, a celebration of the arbitrary nature of living in a city, combines illustration, found, unwanted imagery, postcards and stamps and is housed in recycled frames from markets and charity shops.
The wonderful Columbia Road gallery/shop/studio Elphick's will be selling Loughlan's art shortly. If you've never had the chance to go there in person, they also have an online shop where you can purchase prints by owner Sharon Elphick and a fine selection of artists (Charley Harper, Lisa Jones, Helen Musselwhite, Karin Akesson, David Weidman...)
