PAINTERS’ PAINTERS: Artists of today who inspire artists of tomorrow, featuring the work of nine present-day painters ranging from their 30s to their 60s at the Saatchi Gallery. There are nine artists included in the exhibition, whose aim is to start a discussion about the importance of painting and its future as a contemporary art form, given that installation, sculpture and video dominate the art world. The exhibition includes, Turner Prize nominee Dexter Dalwood whose paintings reimagine the lives of celebrities including Kurt Cobain, Brian Jones and Jackie Onassis, and Norwegian Artist Bjarne Melgaard, the man behind the world’s most controversial chair, Shropshire artist David Brian Smith, who uses his shepherd father as inspiration for his work and LA artist Raffi Kalenderian who helped found the band Wounded Lion.
