An exhibition curated by Opera Gallery for Ozwald Boateng

Fashion designer Ozwald Boateng and Opera Gallery London Director Jean-David Malat are partnering to present a pop-up exhibition of portrait works by British contemporary artist Nick Gentry.

In the Ozwald Boateng flagship store’s gallery space, Portraits presents a selection of Nick Gentry’s distinctive floppy disk and film negative artworks, hand-painted on obsolete vintage media.

Today we go to great lengths to create a digital identity in addition to the actual lives we live, with the belief that these online records are only growing in importance and will outlive us”, the artist states.
