SAT 30 APRIL – SAT 28 MAY
An exhibition by Golden Thread Gallery Mentoring & Exhibition Award winner Drydan Wilson, focussing on the physical actions of skateboarding as a way of making art. The exhibition looks at the interaction between the practitioner and their environment, exploring the distortion of architecture and the subversion of its original purpose.
Drydan Wilson is an artist making work based around his everyday activities and involvement in skateboarding and its subculture. Drydan graduated from Belfast School of Art, in BA Fine Art in 2016 and from MFA Fine Art in 2021. Drydan has worked and studied in Finland, been the recipient of various art awards and grants. He has worked alongside both local and international artists, produced public artwork and had work featured in numerous group and solo exhibitions, nationally and internationally.
Drydan was the very first winner of the GTG Mentoring & Exhibition Award, presented to an University of Ulster School of Art Graduate based on their MFA work and show. The winners of the award receive mentoring and professional support over 12 months from GTG Director Peter Richards and Deputy Director Sarah McAvera.
