Summer Exhibition 2016 at the Royal Academy


This year’s Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy in London was an explosion of colour. The Summer Exhibition is the world’s largest open-submission exhibition, showcasing a fantastic mix of emerging and established artists. I find it absolutely amazing that this show has been held every year since 1768. It is always inspiring, surprising and an absolute wonder to look at, and also every piece is on sale! Here some of my favourite pieces from this year.

  2. Avocado Coconut Egg (ACE) by El Anatsui
  3. Apartment by Seung Yeon Choi
  4. Colour Painting 1 by Nigel O’Neill
