Friend of Leon turned international on Thursday night hosting an exhibition of works by New York artist and designer Sara Blake.
Blake’s collection was a fascinating insight into her process. The collection included a her detailed and evocative sketches as concept drawings for her digitally coloured masterpeices.
The front room of the gallery was hung with Blake’s finished digital works. Each on display represented a print in limited edition of 6. And sales were on fire – a credit to the Blake and her gallery that they generated so much (well deserved) interest.
A series of original sketches and concept drawings adorned the walls at the rear of the gallery. These sketches were beautiful.
A stealthy (not creepy!) shot of the artist remaining mysterious. Amazing tattoos!
The gallery was packed with excited art lovers. Polite elbows were employed to get a look at the works, not to mention to get to the bar for one of the gallery’s signature cocktails.
As the crowd dispersed we took our cue. Great show.
