Writings on the Wall @ Waddington Custot

While graffiti seems like a modern art form, in reality, it could be argued to be one of the oldest. The first cave paintings – found both in France and Indonesia – are believed to be over 40,000 years old, and men and women have been making their marks on walls, buildings and public spaces […]

Cy Twombly @ Centre Pompidou and Gagosian, Paris

Cy Twombly is undoubtedly my favourite artist, yet, despite my infatuation with his work, I know very little about him. I have recently returned from a weekend in Paris.

Rubens @ Royal Academy

The first essay I ever wrote as an undergraduate History of Art student was about Rubens’s Peace and War (1629-30, National Gallery).
