Boys in the Hood, 1989 
Denzil Forrester (b. 1956)
Pastel Study

Located in the A Block Basement Hallway. 

Denzil Forrester's work is rich, complex and highly sophisticated. The strength of his draftmanship and his extraordinary use of colour enable him to bring to his canvasses dynamic movement, and purposeful power. London's urban life is his main source of inspiration. The music which permeates his work comes from the West Indies; the range of iridescent colours into which he translates the music has been evoked by the light and colour of Italy. Forrester has been painting at his London based studio for the past 30 years.
