Curated London

The title of this exhibition comes from the influential but short-lived Memphis Group, a movement founded in Milan by designer Ettore Sottsass. During his childhood in the 1980s, the Florida-born artist Bas was inspired by the Milan Group's work. The look the group codified, which Bas has now drawn upon, features a strong colour palette, bold line and a little humour. All of these works feature a handsome young man in a range of settings, some more surreal than others. The result is rather lovely.
