T E A M Atlas is a solo exhibition by London based artist Lucas Price. The exhibition will open at the Rove Gallery, Hoxton Square 7th – 21st December.
The title Team Atlas is an acronym, (The Earth As My Atlas), which refers to the idea of mapping and cataloguing using images and text.
The show will exhibit a series of new works, comprising oil paintings and carbon and graphite drawings.
Images of plants, statues of Jesus, basketballs, text taken from Ghostface Killah lyrics and personal writings come together to develop new narratives and relationships.
Price is one of very few artists to be accepted onto the Royal College of Art’s MFA painting course without any prior training or qualification. This exhibition will show a culmination of work created during his time spent at the college; building on an artistic path that has led from graffiti, being invited to appear in Banksy’s Oscar nominated film “Exit”, via fashion and design to the RCA. Along with Barry McGee, Kaws et al, Price’s work bridges the gap between fine art and the world of so called “street culture”.
