VERNISSAGE 07.06. 19 Uhr mit musikalischer Begleitung von Pa PELU

This project incorporates a new cycle of paintings that explore signs which are variable and constant through a visionary and idiosyncratic inquiry of the language of painting, drawing on cinematic ideas that concern a poetics of time and duration.

Joshua Uvieghara is a trained artist who works primarily in painting, although often working in collage, found objects, sculpture and installation. These frequently come together as environments that incorporate different approaches to painting. A broad range of sources; including philosophy, the substance of colour and film, influence his practice.

Uvieghara has exhibited in several solo and group exhibitions including The Royal Academy, The Freelands Foundation, Schwartz Gallery and The Deptford X Festival at Core Gallery in London, Towner Gallery in Eastbourne, Grey Area, Koop Projects and Phoenix Gallery in Brighton, The International Biennale Exhibition of Painting Wales in Swansea, Surface Gallery in Nottingham and Fringe MK Painting Prize in Milton Keynes.

Currently Acting Head of Department at City and Guilds of London Art School, Uvieghara has had several academic appointments over the past 16 years as a studio-based lecturer in Fine and Visual Art, from Foundation to Post-Graduate level, including: University of Brighton, Hereford College of Arts, London School of Communication and Rye Studio School. 

He started his formal education on the Art and Design Foundation course at the City Lit in London (1993), studied Fine Art Printmaking at the University of Brighton; also studying Painting, Neon Sculpture and Philosophy of Art at Alfred University in New York on an exchange programme during this time, he has earned a BA with First Class Honours and an MA, both in Fine Art, from the University of Brighton. Uvieghara has also successfully completed independent post-graduate courses in painting at The Essential School of Painting and Turps Art school in London.
