Siddharth Gadiyar - From Saturday 23 March

Main Gallery, Phoenix Brighton

Siddharth Gadiyar is an extraordinary image maker. His paintings often take 2-3 hours to complete, in which time Sid is completely focused. This is highly unusual and unlike other areas of his life.

Project Art Works is artist led organisation based in Hastings working with children, young people and adults who have complex support needs. Through a personalised and holistic approach, the studio programmes and outreach projects provide freedom and purpose through art. The studio is a place where events and happenings unfold revealing the essential abilities and nature of all those involved.
