In March 2009, the Alan Cristea Gallery presented a major new body of etchings and monoprints by British artist Ian Davenport. The exhibition included over 30 new works and was his second solo show with the gallery.
Ian Davenport graduated from Goldsmiths College of Art in 1988 and as one of the generation of Young British Artists, he participated in the 1988 exhibition Freeze, curated by Damien Hirst. In 1991 he was shortlisted for the Turner Prize on the basis of his ability to demonstrate 'the expressive possibilities of abstract paintings'*, and since then has exhibited extensively across the world, and undertaken several large scale site-specific murals, including the 50m long mural under the bridge on Southwark Street.
This exhibition was accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue and also by a short film.
