‘Oh dear, here’s someone who can draw. How the hell is he going to get on in the art world?’
Stuart will be in conversation with Jock McFadyen RA at The Heong Gallery, Cambridge, UK on Wednesday 23 January, 2019 at 6pm.
Jock McFadyen RA first met Stuart in the classroom at his weekly seminar at the Slade. He remembers Wright as ‘a greyhound out of the traps’, hungry for success and anxious to be able to make work. The friendship endured past art school and Stuart's early success with the BP Portrait Award, with the two working in adjoining studios in Hackney for a time.
Join The Heong Gallery for a discussion about the nature of art, ‘making it’ as an artist, and the allure of the winning formula.
