From the very beginnings of human existence, the urge to make images of people has been a fundamental part of being. Paintings of people have continued to evolve through to the present time. This new book focuses on some of those paintings, and places the idea of looking at painting at the very centre of the process of making paintings.
Atul Vohora is a practising painter and regular tutor in London. Born in Kenya, his paintings are informed by exposure to diverse cultural experiences. Through colour, pattern and line, the work engages with ideas of identity and belonging. He has had articles published in the Guardian and Artists and Illustrators magazine.
