Framed 2022: A new outdoor gallery for Battersea
Throughout 2021, Wandsworth Council’s Framed projects turned the borough’s streets into vibrant outdoor art galleries, with works by local artists displayed on lamppost banners. Livening up the high streets, and encouraging people discover the work of artists living in their neighbourhoods, FRAMED has also provided a platform for artists to exhibit their work safely during the pandemic.
For 2022, Framed presents a new cohort of 32 lamppost banner artworks, taking over Falcon Road and Grant Road in Clapham Junction, featuring 14 new artists as well as displaying 18 who took part in 2021.
Artworks have been selected from the artists and makers featured here on Wandsworth Art, a digital project launched in 2020 after the pandemic cancelled all exhibitions and events, including the annual Wandsworth Artist Open House. Wandsworth Art provides an online forum profiling hundreds of exceptional artists, designers, makers, poets, and arts organisations based in the borough, and Framed features a broad range of artistic disciplines and styles including contemporary painting, traditional portraiture, photography to conceptual art, digital drawing, sculpture and illustration.
Artists new to Framed for 2022 include: Adalberto Lonardi, Ann Witheridge, Archie Wardlaw, David Barreiro, Emma Sutton, Fengjin Yu, Hannah Perry, Helena Boase, Ida Nissen, Maddy Gyselynck, Mark Chen, Ramona Guntert, Scott Pohlschmidt and Tomas Harker.
Returning artists, whose work is already visible around Clapham Junction, include: Alice Wilson, Charlie Hawksfield, Dairo Vargas, Grace Brookes, Jayson Singh, Jon Schwochert, Luch Ash, Nneka Uzoigwe, Olivia Twist, Raksha Patel, Ralph Anderson, Roopa Rajapaksha, Sally Loughridge, Sol Golden Sato, Steven Chandler, Stuart Serjent, and Suzi Morris.
