Rising Star Lhouette hosting rare 'Live Art' Experience in St Albans Centre on Friday June 12th

Rising 'pop art' sensation Lhouette, whose contemporary urban artworks are being snapped up by notable collectors throughout the UK, will be undertaking a unique live art creation in the centre of St Albans City on Friday June 12th, from 10am to 5pm. With full public access and visibility, this is a fantastic opportunity for the audience to view first hand an artist in full flow.

With his team, Lhouette will be painting and stencilling a four panel 6' by 6' construction to promote his forthcoming exhibition at Hertfordshire's leading art destination Gallery Rouge in St Albans on Saturday 27th June.

A gifted and naturally talented artist, Lhouette was born and raised in Luton, Bedfordshire, where he demonstrated his early promise in the arts. His earliest memories are of drawing, painting and designing. Despite receiving high praise from his teachers and peer group while at school, he rejected the idea of going to art school and surprised family and friends by joining the Royal Navy instead. He says "I wanted to see the world and get inspiration from other cultures." Five years and twenty- one countries later, Lhouette returned to the UK. During his entire naval career he continued to work on his art and creativity, which became infused with the sights and sounds of his experiences around the world.

Since leaving the Royal Navy, Lhouette has wasted no time in establishing himself as a creative force to be reckoned with. Within four years he had founded a high street art studio and exhibition space, Jumble Fresh Gig and Gallery, and achieved a post-graduate diploma in the arts from Birkbeck College, whilst simultaneously forging a name for himself on the contemporary art scene as an exceptionally skilled and innovative artist.

With urban influences and references to pop culture, Lhouette's non-conformist style is impossible to define and continues to develop and evolve. His debut solo exhibition was a sell-out, and when coupled with his shortlisting by the Fine Art Trade Guild as 'Best Up and Coming Artist' in 2014, it's easy to see why many critics are sitting up and taking note. With a flourishing art career ahead of him, his works are being considered as promising investments, further reinforcing his reputation as one of today's most exciting talents on the contemporary art scene.

Kuldip Chohan, Director of Gallery Rouge, has been an art lover and collector for many decades. After a successful corporate career, he now follows his passion for art through his two galleries, the second located in Harpenden. He says "I select the pick of talented artists for my two galleries and typically only hold four exhibitions a year. Without doubt, Lhouette is one of the most exciting figures on today's art scene; a young artist with enormous potential.

"We had an ambitious idea to create a public display of Lhouette's art in the centre of the City and this is going to be something totally unique and never seen before in St Albans. Members of the public are in for an absolute treat and I'm sure that the Lhouette exhibition at Gallery Rouge on June 27th will be a superb event."
