Small is a passionate believer in social inclusion and that, given the opportunities to be heard and respected, all individuals have something of value to contribute to society. His paintings are an expression of his world view: by painting young marginalised figures of society he allows the viewer to spend time with these urban characters in the hope that a shared sense of humanity arises, unrestricted by class and social boundaries.
Seen & Heard opens on Friday, August 10th from 6-9pm in London at Blackall Studios. The exhibition is curated by Moniker Projects.
