Our artist on show is Howard Haigh, one of the BADs artists. Previously Howard has worked in drawings and ceramics which focus on the architectural elements of his home city which he considers to be most significant. During his time with the BADs project Howard has focused on developing his ceramic skills and has chosen animals, legendary animals and portraits as his main themes. Howard has always wanted to work big and has been developing skills, techniques and knowledge to do this.
Howard’s work will be on display at Left Bank from 3rd – 24th May 2022.
