Late Shows at The Biscuit Factory 2023
13 Apr, 2023 ·
Art and Literature
Join painter and muralist Dan Cimmermann who'll be drawing a large scale portrait outline and inviting members of the public to add to the piece with posca pens, developing the work to completion across the course of the evening.
Leeds-based artist Dan's colourful paintings and murals are a meeting of ‘street’ and ‘studio’; a reflection upon British identity and a rebellion against societal rules of old. Through a process of reworking layers of paint and pen Cimmermann defaces classical works of 18th century portraiture, and creates new narratives.
