Sylwia Kobos: Untitled

10300682_536014379842650_2709034827622580811_n

Sylwia Kobos is a member of Freud’s creative team. She is involved in all of our artistic creation, composing brochures and posters and curating photoshoots on a daily basis. She has an expert eye and that ability few of us possess to magically transform the ordinary into a work of art. If you have seen a beautifully sketched poster for our Oxford bar or a collage or photograph on our Facebook page, it is most likely to be her handy work.

Sylwia has a Master’s in Fine Art from the University of Silesia and has created a small, untitled exhibition currently on show at Freud in London. The exhibition is the spontaneous reproduction of Sylwia’s inner eye, and fluidly combines both her emotional and visual senses to leave dazzling results on the canvas. The exhibition is ready to be explored and discussed, cocktail in hand, and Sylwia is keen that you watch out for the darting birds soaring across her collection.

All artwork is for sale – please enquire for prices.

Konopczynski: “Untameable”

Alan-Palamino 3

Alan Konopczynski is an artist and painter from Katowice, Poland. He is a graduate of the University of Silesia, where he trained as a graphic artist.

Fascinated by the unpredictability of the wilderness, Alan’s works concentrate on one of nature’s most beautiful and mysterious creatures: the horse.  Working with natural elements, he infuses an animating texture into the pieces, which in concert with the deep, stormy palette of blacks, coppers, ambers, and brilliant white, capture the nature of the living beasts.

Alan’s artwork will be on display at Freud London until Sunday 27th April 2014, and is an exhibition of such quality that you need to see it.

All artwork is for sale – email enquiries to catherine@freudltd.co.uk

INDUSTRY PRESENTS: DRESS TO KILL

Dress To Kill

“The men and women of the 1940s dressed to kill. Dazzling sirens shrouded themselves in half-truths, whole lies, and the best silk money could buy. Spies revealed their true colours . . . in brooding black and white. And on set, dark shadows and looming alleyways became characters in and of themselves. The effect? Drop-dead gorgeous.”

Vanity Fair, September 2013 Industry and Freud bring you ‘Dress To Kill’ to celebrate the launch of Industry’s Hilary Issue.  A homage to classic Hollywood film noir dramas takes place Wednesday of 7th Week, come and indulge in a night of 40s glitz and glamour, with live music, dancing and cocktails from 9 ’til 2.
