Renowned artist to visit Milton Keynes Gallery with new collection

    Internationally-renowned artist, Alex Echo, is set to visit Castle Galleries, Milton Keynes on Saturday 24th June, from 1pm to 4pm to exhibit his latest collection, Imagine.

    Collectors and friends of the gallery will have the opportunity to meet the artist himself, learn about his collections, present and past, and the techniques he uses. The works will then be on display for a further week.

    Imagine follows Echo’s immensely successful exhibition The Shape of Things, and paves the way for a very exciting 12 months for the artist and his collectors. Communicating Echo’s love for the earth, the collection focuses on six key areas: solar, nature, sea, shapes, words and sculptures.

    With a professional art career spanning 37 years, Echo has garnered the attention of some the world’s most prestigious corporations. Completely self-taught, his career highlights have included creating fabric designs for fashion designer, Paul Smith, and billboards for Absolut Vodka which ran for one year on the fabled Sunset Strip in Hollywood, California.

    Alex Echo said: “Now more than ever, with our world in the throes of social, moral, political and ethical upheaval, I believe we have to IMAGINE.

    “I want to make whatever contribution I can to make the world even a slightly better place and enhance and bring light to people’s environments. I hope that people will recall how sweet life can be seeing the collection – and remember how important the earth is to us all.”

    Peter Viet-Lu, gallery manager at Castle Galleries, Milton Keynes – Washington Green Fine Art’s nationwide network of high street galleries – said: “The Imagine collection by Alex Echo is yet another amazing set of works and really needs to be viewed in person in order to appreciate the intricate use of colours and textures.

    “The meet the artist event will provide a fantastic insight into Alex’s inspirations and techniques and we can’t wait to welcome him to the gallery to talk through the collection.”

    Those who wish to attend the event and meet the artist should contact the gallery to be added to the guest list.
