'Black Music Legends' - Celebrating the most influential black musicians of all time

From 26th JUN to 25th AUG

Devonshire Square is proudly marking World Music Day and Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Month by hosting in the DSQube ‘Black Music Legends’, a visual art exhibition featuring a stunning collection of portraits by internationally renowned artist Nick Brown, celebrating some of the most influential black musicians of all time.

Presented by cultural art specialists Cole’s Art Gallery & Artist Management,  Nick Brown creates highly detailed photo realistic portraits, and his exceptional talent has led to him painting commissioned portraits for a wide range of established actors, music artists, sports and media personalities, including Dave Chappelle, KSI and many others.

Nick studied graphic design at the London College of Communication and works in a vast range of mediums including spray paint, oil paint, pencil, ink, digital and silk screen printing, and has worked alongside brands like Nike, Evisu and PlayStation.

The exhibition also includes a collection of striking artworks by South-Asian artist Tonn Patchu,  who has gained international recognition for his captivating oil on canvas creations, and Cuban artist Yacel Canalias, who draws inspiration from the richness of Caribbean culture and music to create visually engaging, soulful portraits and vibrant scenes that ooze rhythm and passion for life.

The collective of artists is being presented by Cole’s Art Galleries & Artist Management and all artworks on display are original and available for purchase, with 10% of all proceeds going to support local homeless charity Whitechapel Mission.

All Nick Brown’s original pieces on display are exclusively available for purchase at this exhibition at negotiable prices – as well as a selection of his limited edition prints – with free delivery within London.

The exhibition will run until 25th August and it is open every day, from Monday to Saturday, from 12 noon to 6.30pm.

You are all warmly invited to visit the exhibition and join Devonshire Square, Cole’s Art Gallery and their collective of artists, in celebrating some of the greatest black musicians in history, who have made music what is today.
