About the artist:
Born 1994 London, Jake Grewal lives and works in London. Graduated from BA Fine Art Painting, Brighton University (2016); and Postgraduate Scholarship at the Royal Drawing School (2019).
Grewal’s work expresses autobiographical experiences within the language of Romanticism. The work is situated within a dream-like reality that references the male nude through a queer gaze. Figures are exposed to the natural world, which is often used allegorically to vocalise Grewal’s internal landscape.
