Re-seen & Unseen
Aleksandra Zareba Zeltsch & Brian Okello
3-8 March 2020

Two independent artists come together to present new artworks inspired by their relationship to, and journey through, Ladbroke Grove and the Westway estate.

Re-seen by Aleksandra Zareba Zeltsch is a visual journey to rediscover the place that became her new home five years ago, to recapture the wonder that got lost in time and to reignite her emotional connection. Her process evolves through the historical path of art creation by progressing from hand-drawn sketches to photography and digital painting.

Unseen by Brian Okello (aka popular Instagram artist, Bamboookidd), conveys his introspective ideas on the urban landscape and the characteristics of a community interacting under the Westway. Unseen celebrates what is seen whilst uncovering what’s beneath and unseen. His ideas are informed by social commentary and spontaneous responses to his environment, transformed through illustration and graphic art.
