Most recent exhibition: The Blake Gallery
Civic Centre, Gravesend: 18 June - 6 July 2012
Blake 108 by Alan O'Cain
108 studies for a portrait of Sir Peter Blake exhibited in celebration of Blake's 80th birthday.
I am very grateful to Gravesham Council for supporting a display of my 108 coloured pencil portraits of Sir Peter Blake in the wonderful new artspace at Gravesend Civic Centre (during the period of Blake's 80th Birthday - June 25th). Thanks also to Sir Peter Blake for posing for the original photograph. And congratulations to Vilte Fuller, winner of the competition sponsored by Derwent Pencils in association with this show.

I have held solo exhibitions at the Hay Festival (2006) and at venues in London (Covent Garden/Hendon Hall) 2007-2008. I have shown work at Glyndebourne Gallery, the Residenz in Salzburg and at art fairs in the UK and abroad. In 2012 I held a solo show at the Duke's Theatre Gallery, Lancaster with additional works in the Rare Books Archive of Lancaster University Library. Work is also on show on a rotating basis in my own studio and visitors are welcome.
Please for a private view.
