Only couple of weeks ahead of his long awaited London solo show, Ryan Hewett (featured) and The Unit London shared with us some images of his newest works. Staying true to his abstract portraiture, the South African painter seems to have developed more distinctive and striking visual language since his last solo show with the gallery in April of 2015.

Opening towards the end of September, Hewett’s solo show will include a new series of portrait oils created especially for this exhibition. After a great success of the sold out preview show earlier this year, the new body of work seems to feature even more colors and prominent strokes. The well balanced mixture of expressive brush work and texture, against solid tones and gradients, brings out the subject even more while still obscuring their main features.
